Women Speak Out! A Report of the Pacific Women's Conference. October 27 – November 2

On Women and the Family

On Women and the Family

Resolution 1: We accept the sentiment expressed that women need to have a surer method of receiving economic support for the family, and that free legal aid, home counselling and government subsidy through child endowments be provided for women.

Resolution 2: That all parents make special effort to train and educate their children regarding their attitudes and responsibilities in the family.

Resolution 3: As domestic violence seems to be largely the result of excessive consumption of liquor, that a national educational programme be conducted in the use of alcohol through school curriculum and all levels of the mass media.

Resolution 4: That all present government policies and legislation be reviewed and future policies and legislation incorporate the strengths and responsibilities of the extended family system.
