Marking International Women's Day, Dr Gemma Romain talks about Jamaican sculptor Edna Manley, whose work responded to living in colonial Jamaica, witnessing the struggles for nationhood and independence from Britain. Influenced by African art, including that of Ancient Egypt, Manley created sculptures representing the diversity of Jamaican life and struggles.
