WILPF Polynesia was created in 1982 with the aim of tackling gender discrimination and ending gender violence. The Section’s goal is to lead a strong feminist movement in the country in order to further promote women’s rights and raise awareness of the injustices suffered by women.
In a post-colonial context, the Section also advocates for the “right to difference”; that is, for a country where ethnic minorities do not face discrimination. Consequently, WILPF Polynesia challenges normative stereotypes inherited by a liberal and white colonialism which further discriminates against native women within their own community
