Women Leaders in Solomon Islands Public Service: A Personal and Scholarly Reflection

This study sought to identify the reasons that Solomon Islander women are poorly represented in national leadership.  It was found that while women are very poorly represented in Parliament there is more to the issue of representation when the scope is broadened to include the public service.  The focus includes emerging trends of women’s involvement in leadership positions and discusses the improvement in levels of women’s participation in decision-making circles within the public service.  This paper looks at change as inevitable for women's participation in leadership roles, acknowledging that change includes important and hopeful steps forward as well as delays and setbacks.
