I just reviewed Roots Daughters: The Women of Rastafari at Blogcritics.
It's a contemporary women’s, ethnic, religious and political history all rolled into one. Be still my heart!
When I finished watching it, instead of feeling like I knew so much about Rastafarianism, I just felt like I wanted to know more and since this is a mommy blog and all, I thought some people here would be interested in this study I found. Essentially, rural Jamaican women who use marijuana tend to be more educated and more financially independent than those who don’t. And even though they continue to use marijuana while pregnant and breastfeeding, their babies score higher on alertness tests than babies of mothers who are less educated and less financially independent, even though they don’t smoke. I’m not drawing any grand conclusions or anything, just thought it was interesting.
