The UN Development Programme and the Australian High Commission in Solomon Islands have gathered an exciting selection of posters and essays including the winners of the 2021 Outstanding Women’s Essay and Poster Competition in an exhibition that will be on display from December 1 to December 4 at the National Art Gallery in Honiara.

In 2022, UNDP partnered with the Ministry of Education, Human Resource and Development (MEHRD) to launch this Essay and Poster Competition. The Competition targeted secondary students, their teachers and students of tertiary institutions in Honiara, aiming to engage the next generation of policy makers, youth and children, as well as their teachers and parents in an avenue that addressed barriers to women’s leadership.

The posters and essays portray participants’ ideas of gender equality, women’s rights, and empowerment. Artworks that were submitted illustrated the many problems revolving around gender equality in Solomon Islands, particularly gender-based discrimination in the workplace, education, and politics.

The launch of the exhibition was preceded by an award ceremony that acknowledged the winners of the contest.
