Women, Development and Empowerment: A Pacific Feminist Perspective



Women are the most economically-exploited group in society and as such are committed to transforming the economy to a more equitable system. This system must ensure the equal distribution of resources for production and of development benefits.

Our vision of the economy is one which allows:

  • equitable access to productive resources and capital

  • equitable distribution of wealth generated by the people

  • using resources in ways that benefit the whole society and not just a small proportion of the people

  • sovereignty in choosing trading partners
