Experiencing the Public Sector: Pacific Women’s Perspectives

This report contains the findings and future research recommendations arising from a short study about the experiences of women in the public sector across the Pacific.  Forty women from six Pacific Island countries, namely Kiribati, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Vanuatu, identified factors contributing to successes and challenges of working in the public sector. All were senior or middle level public sector employees. The study reveals a range of strategies and obstacles including abuses experienced by female public sector employees.
