Through a feminist perspective, this volume examines the presence of women in contemporary Carnival by demonstrating not only their strength in numbers, but also the ways in which women participate in the event. While decried by traditionalists, the bikinis, beads, and feathers of \"pretty mas\" convey both a newly found empowerment as a gendered resistance to oppression from men. Although research on Carnivals is substantial, especially in the Americas, the subject of women in Carnival as a topic of inquiry remains fairly new. These essays address anthropological and historical facets of women and their practices in the Trinidad Carnival, including an analysis of how women\'s costuming and performance have changed over time. The modern costumes, which are well within the financial means of most mas players, demonstrate the new power of women who can now afford these outfits. In discussing the commodification and erotization of Carnival, the book emphasizes the unveiling of the female body and the hip-rolling sexual movements called winin or it. Through display of their bodies, contemporary women in Carnival express a form of female resistance. Intent on enjoying and expressing themselves, they seem invigorated by their place in the economy, as well as their sexuality, defying the moral controls imposed on them. Through an array of methods in qualitative research, including interviews, participant observation, and ethnography, this volume explains the new power of women in the evolution of Carnival mas in Trinidad amid the wider Caribbean diaspora\"<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Preface -- Introduction \/ Frances Henry and Dwaine Plaza -- Women and the De-Africanization of Trinidad Carnival: From the Jamette to Bikini, Beads, and Feathers \/ Dwaine Plaza and Jan DeCosmo -- Stories of Resistance and Oppression: Baby Doll and Dame Lorraine \/ Frances Henry and Jeff Henry -- Jamette!: Women and Canboulay in 1881 \/ Philip W.
