About the Pacific Women Website
PacificWomen.org is a website developed under the Pacific Women Shaping Pacific Development (Pacific Women) to improve information sharing on gender equality in the Pacific region. Enhanced knowledge and evidence to inform policy and practice is essential to achieving gender equality.
Gender inequality remains a significant development challenge for many countries in the world – including those in the Pacific. Nations are unable to reach their full potential when half of their citizens are excluded from important leadership and economic opportunities. Pacific Women aims to improve the political, economic and social opportunities of Pacific Women. Enhanced knowledge and evidence to inform policy and practice is a key focus of Pacific Women.
Pacific Women operates as an information portal for individuals and organisations to share and access information including news, innovative activities and analysis, on responses to gender in equality in the Pacific region.

Organisations and individuals are invited to share their news, events and resources on gender equality issues on this website.
