Founded in 2011, Women’s Rights Action Movement is a brave and bold organization in the Solomon Islands that advances the rights of girls and women. Its influential work includes three focus areas: women in leadership, women’s economic empowerment, and eliminating violence against women and girls. With a strong commitment to building shared power, WRAM partners with sister organizations to advocate for change with a a collective voice from the grassroots to the national parliament. This dynamic collaboration has contributed massively to transformational policy change at the provincial and national levels—leading, for example, to 7 out of 9 of the country’s provinces introducing special measures to advance women’s political participation. Their powerful advocacy efforts also paved the way for the country’s first-ever legislation on domestic violence. In addition, WRAM hosts national and provincial forums that bring together women and girls across generations to advocate for legislative change. Today WRAM’s influence is rapidly reaching beyond its own borders, helping to grow and strengthen intergenerational feminist networks across the Pacific region.
