This Report considers the first hand accounts of women who contested the 2012 election, a group of media representatives and a group of representatives of political parties. The impediments to the participation and representation of women in public decision making roles in PNG are found across all parts of life in PNG. The Report makes findings and recommendations based on the data collected at the Election Diagnostic Workshop and, using that evidence base, acknowledges the need for a multifaceted response to a complex problem with multiple causes and manifestations.
