Responsibilities

Traditionally, women share household responsibilities with their male counterparts. In general, BVI women take care of chores such as "gardening, cooking, sewing, and keeping household accounts". In modern-day British Virgin Islands, women occupy major positions in the fields of education and civil service. Some women from other regions of the Caribbean who live in the British Virgin Islands may be working as "service workers" and can be found occupying jobs such as "clerks, secretaries, housekeepers, and waitresses". Women participate in church activities. As part of their contribution to the community, women contribute their skills and knowledge in the fields of education and in community festivals. Women can vote when they reach 18 years old.

Women's welfare

An office known as the Woman's Desk, a part of the Office of the Chief Minister, was established during the early part of the 1990s in order to provide "educational and intervention programs" that handle issues related to "women's health and domestic violence".
