New Session: Women and Power in Polynesia
Organizers: Melani Anae and Penelope Schoeffel
Saturday, February 11, 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., Jasmine 2
We propose this informal session for 2017 at the next ASAO meeting in February 2017. It will examine the historical institutions that protected or empowered women in Polynesian societies, and also the impacts of modernity/globalisation that may have disempowered, or re-empowered women in new ways. Considerable interest in this new session has already been indicated.
To participate in an informal session for next year’s meeting, please contact either of the session organizers.
