Building inclusive young women's leadership in the Pacific: spaces for change

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapterpeer-review


Recent research suggests young women across Asia and the Pacific lead in ways that fundamentally challenge traditional and dominant modes of leadership (as flagged by Pruitt and Lee Koo in the introduction to this book). The rise of self created spaces for young women and girls as leaders of social movements in the
Pacific has, until now, had too little attention in social movement scholarship. In the Pacific region formal decision-making traditionally takes place between states or between elder men. Wider civil society actors often find they are excluded or ignored (Interview #17 Suva, November 2016).
