"Poverty is a Person: Human Agency, Women and Caribbean Households"

"Poverty is a Person: Human Agency, Women and Caribbean Households"

Prof. Theresa Rajack-Talley’s latest book, Poverty is a Person, focuses on poverty in the midst of a so-called paradise.

In this Q&A, we learn how the patriarchy has persisted, and what we can all do to help alleviate poverty.
