Striving to Measure Improved Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women in the Pacific

Samantha Hung

The Pacific region’s commitment and capacity to measure and monitor degrees of gender (in)equality and the status of women remains partial at best. Many important indicators about Pacific gender issues remain uncounted, miscounted or under-counted. Although all Pacific island countries and territories (PICfs) have endorsed the Pacific Platform for Action for the Advancement of Women and Gender Equality (PPA), all but three independent countries (Nauru, Tonga and Tuvalu) in the region have ratified the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW); several have national women’s/gender action plans/policies, but few have demonstrated their genuine commitment in the sense of devoting adequate resources to implementation and reporting.
