Miss Amy and Miss May
A film by Sistren Research
Directed by Cynthia Wilmot
Jamaica, 1990, 40 minutes, Color, VHS
Order No. W99063
Amy Bailey, daughter of an eminent Black family, was a leader of the Jamaican women’s movement in the 1930s. May Farquharson, daughter of a wealthy white planter, fought for reproductive rights for women and reforms to benefit the elderly. Combining contemporary interviews and dramatized scenes from their long, unlikely friendship, this fascinating docudrama covers the history of the fight for social justice for women in Jamaica. Useful for courses on women’s history, women and development and Caribbean studies. A Phase 3 Production.


    “Informative and entertaining. Reveals a little-known but important facet of Caribbean history. Recommended.”
    Library Journal

    “A much overdue work.”
