The first ever Pacific Feminist Forum runs from Monday 28th November to Wednesday 30th November.

The forum theme is aptly titled ‘Mapping journeys, Building movements’.

Dr. Claire Slatter as key note speaker, provided a fantastic background on feminist movement in the Pacific.

(Claire is also founding member of Women in Fisheries Network – Fiji!)
