Response to Re: The place of women in modern PNG society

tenk u long ol gutpela tintin blo yupela ol wantok. mi gat liklik tintin tu long tromoi long flo na yumi ken skelim.

well so much have been said about the place of women in the modern PNG society.

If we are to discuss the issue, i suggest we should take into considerations the many factors such the the environment and the trend of development the country has undergone over the last 28 years.

In the cultural context, the place of the woman was predetermined. That the woman has no choice. her roles and manner of conduct is set. her reluctance or rather or inability to perform those roles for one reason or another is unbecoming of a lady. the roles and the behaviours of th women vary from society to society.

today we are at crossroads, woman have taken on man dominated roles which offcourse form the basis for resentment and other uncalled for reactions from man.
woman throughout the globe has changed an moved on and have become quite successful, in their own rights. similar trend is developing in PNG.

rather then identifying the destinations and places of women, i suggested we should take an liberal approach on the issue and perhaps provide the environment conducive for women so that they are not only mothers in the kitchen or gardens but also equal partners in development of this country.
