"Jamette" comes from the French word "diametre" which referred to the class of people below the diameter of respectability in 19th century Trinidad. Jamette women were poor, non white, of the urban working class and were considered promiscuous, wanton, idle and often prostitutes. Women in the old Jamette carnival bands in Trinidad embraced this label and openly challenged the ultra conservative Victorian upper class standards by wearing revealing clothes, dancing lewdly in the streets and openly soliciting upper class men. 


In 2017, we feel that Jamette women still challenge ideas of respectable femininity. When the iron roars, she is sexy, loose, empowered and confident but most importantly, she is free.
