that affect Caribbean women such as abortion and domestic violence, displayed through different women. The Ill Concepts of the Caribbean Woman exposes and speaks openly about disturbing issues within the Caribbean that are well and truly hidden. These issues are so destructive that many become isolated and consequently lose themselves.


Tiffany is 16 and pregnant and does not know what to do or who to tell, as abortion is not an option. To make matters worse her older sister stumbles on her positive pregnancy result. Tiffany’s life is spiralling out of control but she is soon surprised by what she discovers about her sister.


As the narrative develops, each issue meanders into the other showing each character that they are not alone. Tiffany and all the women go on a journey of self discovery and self development into understanding their actions.
