Martinican Women as Political Protagonists in the Overseas Department
Paulette Nardal’s editorials in the journal La Femme dans la cité trace a line of continuity from her writings on race, gender and Antillean cultural identity in Paris in the interwar years, to her writings on women’s political participation in the early years of departmentalization in Martinique. This chapter argues that Nardal’s decolonial citizenship disrupts the colonial conflation of race and national identity and imagines instead a hyphenated French-Antillean citizenship that includes Antillean cultural belonging in the Caribbean and political enfranchisement in the Caribbean and in France.
