World: March is Women’s History Month, and the Caribbean countries like Barbados, Dominica, and the Bahamas are celebrating their women by giving them the respect they deserve.


Sports Icon, Equality Champion, Founder of @BJKLInitiative @adidas Global Ambassador Billie Jean King tweeted, “I have long said that women have been conditioned to want less. Women are supposed to be happy with the crumbs, but we deserve the cake, the icing, and the cherry on top. Let’s close the #EntitlementGap!”


High Commission of Canada in Barbados tweeted, “Our partners are making #GenderEquality a reality! We are proud to partner with @equality_fund to protect & advance women’s rights through the #WVL Caribbean initiative providing support to @HelenDaughters @ourvoiceslu & @SLUFeathers in #SaintLucia#IWD2021 @LilianCGAC


The new health and wellness center has been inaugurated in the name of Nurse Olivia Douglas, “Olivia Douglas Health & Wellness Center.

Olivia Douglas has spent most of her life in Dominica in the health service employing several years as a nurse and then nurse instructor at the Princess Margaret Hospital, Roseau, and the Portsmouth Hospital.

The Bahamas

The Bahamas government wrote, “March is Women’s History Month, and today we also celebrate World Wildlife Day.”

Furthermore, they added, We would like to feature Dr. Katherine Ralls, Conservation Biologist, and express our appreciation to all women and men who work to preserve our nature’s biodiversity.

Dr. Katherine Ralls got a BA in Biology from Stanford in 1960, an MS in Biology from Radcliffe College in 1962, and a Ph.D. in Biology from Harvard University in 1965.

Dr. Katherine Ralls has long had broad interests in the behavioral ecology, genetics, and conservation of mammals, both terrestrial & marine. Since 1980, She has been mostly related to conservation biology, especially the genetic problems of small captive and wild masses, and field studies of threatened and endangered mammals, including sea otters and San Joaquin kit foxes. 

Her practical experience with the conservation disputes of a variety of endangered species has led to her interest in developing non-invasive techniques for studying these species and the improvement of decision-making tools and processes to gain better policy and management decisions.
