This Web site is dedicated to the women of Oceania. During times of plenty it is the women who do so much of the work and during the lean times it is the women who have to make the sacrifices for the sake of their families. Through all this they have the strength given to them by their cultural heritage that allows them to cope regardless of the difficulties of their circumstances.
