Reaching into the Bilum: Motherhood as a Source of Women's Power in Papua New Guinea

Spark, Ceridwen; Meki, Theresa


In this paper we focus on an important aspect of preliminary findings from two research projects conducted in Papua New Guinea. The preliminary findings note the significance of women's status as mothers and the ways in which women draw on this role to construct new paths for themselves in the political and economic spheres.
