GHD, in partnership with ABC International Development and Pacific Sports Partnership, is featuring a photo gallery with the women of Pacific sport.

Women in the Pacific still face significant barriers to gender equality but, right across the Pacific, brave and bold women are taking on the traditionally male-dominated realm of sport, and that’s something worth celebrating this International Women’s Day.

This special AustraliaPlus photo essay examines some of the broader statistics regarding the Pacific Sports Partnership's role in improving gender equity across the Pacific, but then takes a close-up look at what these statistics look like in action. We focus on women in their many roles across a range of sports in many PSP programmes. These bold and colourful images are designed to reflect the broader theme of International Women’s Day 2017: #BeBoldForChange. It will be integrated into a broader ABC-wide focus on women on 8 March.
