Summary Heather Wallace examines changes in attitudes to women in the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. She discusses policy changes and the slow process of these filtering into practice leading to shifting attitudes towards women's decision-making role in the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. Her focus is on the complex processes by which policy changes are translated into practice, and she looks at both non-governmental organizations and the government in addressing gender policy and in the implementation of programmes in Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands.
