Pasifika women are the backbones of their communities in the islands and in New Zealand, But so often, in New Zealand as in their homelands, their contributions and opinions have been invisble or under-documented... This book, then, is welcome. The author, New Zealand-born television journalist Sandra Kailahi, who describes herself as being Tongan and New Zealand descent, is a Fair Go staffer who formerly worked at Tagata Pasifika. This is her first book.
