Abstract

Gender equity is a key plank to European Commission activities and aid-funded initiatives and yet, despite many years of engagement achieving gender equity is many parts of the world remains a huge challenge. The Pacific island states are no exception and indeed here in strongly traditional and patriarchal societies there may be particular obstacles to overcome. Drawing on the empirical research of social anthropologists, policy consultants, a documentary film maker and law researchers this report offers insights into the social environment of gender in order to suggest practical steps that could be supported to advance gender equality in the region
