In honor of the Seven Women who have politically represented 48.9% of Papua New Guineas people since Independence in 1975 at a national level.
We have had 9 Women in National Parliament since 1975, of which 2 were elected in 2022.
There are 118 members of National Parliament of which female representation is 1.7%.
For equality considering the population, there should be
at least 58 seats held by female Leaders.
Papua New Guinea has not progressed with gender equality and equity.
We have gone backwards in Independence and gender equality.
Papua New Guinea has a (Gender Inequality Index) GII value of 0.740, ranking it 161 out of 162 countries in the 2018 index.
Together as Papua New Guineans and equality advocates around the world, we can change this.
"The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist, nor to any one organisation, but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights".
By providing resources and a platform to increase the power females hold at all levels of business and politics, with a targeted focus on promoting equality in the political arena for Women in Papua New Guinea.
