A Facebook page that is now over 180k women, Pacific Women’s Network expresses everything that is good about well-networked communities of interest. It does not need to be more than the on-line media platform that it is. It has redefined what support for women from island states – women who are not as easily linked to professional development and opportunities as others – looks like. Not program based, but rather focused on creating a ‘wallpaper of consciousness and connection’, it has allowed women and girls to tap into the leadership experiences of strong talented Pacific women.
Sally Ride said that ‘you can’t be what you can’t see’. This is still true today. So Pacific Women’s Network has done just that – we created an on-line presence where you can see the achievements of women and girls from American Samoa, Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, French Polynesia, Fiji, Guam, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, New Caledonia, Niue, Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
