“Women have always been there. We are 50% of the community. All the decisions about safety, food, security and the well-being of Pacific people come through us.”
Hear from Dr Gemma Malungahu & Dr Theresa Meki about the important role Pacific women have always played in security, including the deep cultural and traditional knowledge they bring to decision-making.
Hosted by Akka Rimon, this discussion for Women’s History Month also touches on the need for greater representation of Pacific women in institutions, current challenges facing Pacific women, including gender-based violence, and the power women have to mentor each other and write their own stories.
