Tribute to Solomon Island women
Review of Being the First: Stories blong Oloketa Mere Lo Solomon Aelan, edited by Alice Aruhe'eta Pollard and Marilyn Warin
This book profiles the stories of 14 outstanding women, revealing their intimate moments, their struggles and the highs they have faced during their lives. Solomon Islands women make up around 49 percent of the country's population. Traditionally, these women are multi-taskers—as food producers, home keepers, child-bearers and child educators they are largely invisible in the media. Here we see them in a new light.
