Village Government in Samoa: Do Women Participate?

AUTHOR(S)

The research is testing the hypothesis that the practices of village councils and mainstream churches deter women from assuming leadership roles. We think this might be the reason why so few women aspire to parliamentary careers, and why hardly any of those who do, are elected. We suspect that it may also economically disempower women in village life, even those women who are active in and play many leading roles in the urban economy.
