"Women suffered the most in French-colonized Martinique.", Claudette Duhamel, Movement of Democrats and Environmentalists for Sovereign Martinique representative, said this during her speech at the event on "Decolonization: Empowerment and Development of Women", APA reports.
She said that women have always been seen as inferior: "But we have always fought for the freedom of our country. Today, women face discrimination. In the colony of Martinique, there are still those who suffer from the condition of slavery. Both slavery and colonialism made the situation of our women difficult".
