Comments on: The long journey – political acceptance of women Thinking for ourselves Fri, 29 Apr 2016 00:58:16 -0700 hourly 1 By: Carol Thu, 10 Mar 2016 06:01:45 +0000 You are a trail blazer! People will remember you one day as one of the people who was brave enough to start the empowerment and equal opportunity for women in Vanuatu. It’s a world movement, you are not alone.

Thank you so much for telling your story. It is one of courage on your part and by other women in Vanuatu, but it is also a very depressing story of the massive discrimination you faced when you asserted your rights to stand as a candidate for Parliament. While you did not succeed this time I’m sure you are a very important pioneer for the women of Vanuatu and their rights. Challenging and changing cultural values is never easy.
Regards, Wren Green

Wow…..what an amazing story. How can I help you publish your story so that your voice is echoed to the widest possible extent? Would an introduction to the Independent Newspaper help you?

How can we work together for your community? Would an introduction to the Rotary Club help? Would an introduction to other aid donors help?

Please contact me so that we can discuss the problems that you face…….indeed the problems that all women in Vanuatu face.
