FOR a Grade Six leaver to be catapulted into Parliament House as a national leader is no ordinary feat especially if you are a woman in patriarchal Melanesian societies like Solomon Islands.
Freda A.B Tuki Soriacomua (pictured) is the only female MP in the Solomon Islands Parliament after being elected last November in her Vatud Constituency.
Vatud is an acronym for Vanikoro, Anuta, Tikopia, Utupua and Duff Islands, predominantly inhabited by Polynesian inhabitants from the outer islands of the far eastern Temotu Province of the Solomon Islands. There are also Melanesian people in some of these small islands.
