This song was written and performed by Pacific adolescent girls during their two-day preparatory workshop ahead of the Pacific Girl Regional Stakeholders’ Dialogue (12–16 May 2018 in Suva, Fiji).
The imagery comes from the workshop and from regional consultations for Pacific Girl – funded by the Australian Government through the Pacific Women Shaping Pacific Development program.
The video also draws on ‘Pacific Girls Speak’ developed as part of the design consultation for Pacific Girl – led by Plan International Australia for Pacific Women Shaping Pacific Development, available here: (link to the Resources/Pacific Girls Speak video page)
