    Reading the article, I do agree with all that has been said. However the support or lack of support facing women is not necessarily the central issue of very few women (esp in PNG) being elected to Parliament.

    The fundamental issue is the ‘concept of power and the ownership of the voice’. This is a culturally embedded concept and would need greater participatory approach that is inclusive of members of communities to look into themselves. Both men and women need to unpack this concept in order to create a greater opening for women’s participation in governance and politics.
