It is possible that small states of the Caribbean would be marginalized by globalization although these states will benefit from comparative education which would give greater international exposure to their circumstances and contributions to world culture and civilization.The Caribbean region has diversity and people from different backgrounds and would be able to focus on a new perspective on the demands of increasing globalization. Through greater participation and closer engagement with comparative education, the Caribbean region would be able to expand its contribution to the globalized world (Louisy, 2001).The links between feminist thinking and international relations could be examined considering the fact that international relations are primarily based on male-female dichotomies separating the public and private spheres as women tend to be largely excluded from state power and decision making as the state and the political arena are gendered (Byron and Thorburn, 1998). The recognition of the links between global economy and gender would draw out the links between foreign and international policy and the areas of concern within international relations would be international security, human rights, international political economy, and gender policies in the Caribbean (Byron and Thorburn, 1998). In this context, the contributions of the Caribbean women on feminist theorizing and research agenda would show the different aspects of international relations.In fact, the very conspicuous feminist changes within the Caribbean would be noted in the visibility of Caribbean women in different occupational positions which were once reserved only for European people and the challenges to a transforming relationship between gender and global capitalism are also highlighted (Mullings, 2005). The professional and managerial recruitment practices in finance and banking constitute a new relationship between capitalism and patriarchy. Mullings (2005) examines whether the increased presence of women at the workplace show changes in the gender relations in the region.
