American debates about the label “feminism” can seem a bit precious as applied to Haiti, where the reality of “gender without walls” in the idp camps is enhancing existing high rates of sexual assault. The Duke FHI Haiti Lab is engaged in a research project/group independent study on “Rebuilding Women’s Rights in Haiti” in which we theorize legislative needs for women in the Haitian recovery through study of Haiti’s legislative history, women’s activist initiatives, cultural structures, and relationships to international conventions and entities.

In the Kreyòl Blog, the Haiti Lab will post links to Kreyòl sites and documents on women, violence, and law in Haiti. We highly recommend starting with “Fanm nan lalwa peyi dayiti” (“Women in Haitian Law”).
