|Synopsis||Being A Woman in Papua New Guinea: From Grass Skirts and Ashes to
Education and Global Changes confronts and challenges issues that are currently
affecting women in Papua New Guinea, and yet the laws and society are doing less or
nothing about it. The author challenges the denial to education, freedom of speech, and the fears women of being rejected, raped, abuse, killed and many more-as women in Papua New Guinea.
The book confronts the issues, and searches for solution avenues through governemnt and the laws of PNG. The book does not aim to degrade the men in PNG, but aims to educate, inform, and position them all as loving, respectable and honourable.
The book was recently launched and presented to the Governor General of Papua New Guinea, Sir Paulias Matane - who has also written the Forward to the Book.The book does give a lot of insight into what goes on in humans in one part of the world-especially social issues affecting women in PNG. The book is written and presented very simply, using very simple English, targeting the average English speaker in PNG.
The book is a collection of the author's personal experiences and observations on the treatment of women in PNG during her many years as a newspaper journalist in PNG. It contains fact news cuttings, behind the scene stories by real women victims, and interviews and stories that Christina Kewa has collected which are very challenging for the development of women and PNG as a nation. The book has been well received and much publicized. In October 2007 the author a presentation of the book to lone PNG female MP Dame Carol Kidu at the National Parliament. On the same day, women in PNG marched to Parliament to petition the government for stonger laws and law enforcement after a pregnant woman was cut open and the baby was pulled out and killed by her husband. This was yet another worst case of abuse, yet Parliament said and did nothing. The petition was slammed again. So, it is on the basis of stories like this and hundreds more happening in PNG that made the authorwrite this book.
Christina Kewa is now a resident of Ruakaka in Northland.
