Abstract:Peggy Antrobus reflecting on her life and work in the Caribbean looks at how to protect the livelihoods of the poor and the well-being of children in an environment increasingly hostile to the well-being of the majority of people. She sees women's empowerment and respect for child rights as an important way to foster the needed values of self-reliance, compassion, community and co-operation essential in any lasting development process.Development (2001) 44, 5357. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110237
