While advancements have been made in Jamaica that allow for growth in multiple social and economic sectors, this does not necessarily extend to society’s treatment of women. Moreover, some aspects of the country’s evolution lag behind, especially in the field of women’s health. This thesis examines several facets of what make up women’s quality of life. These include the history of women in Jamaica, traditional gender specific attitudes pertaining to sex, healthcare practices, and the significant presence of violence in the country.
