DAME CAROL KIDU
Edited extracts of questions from a talk by Dame Carol Kidu at the University of Papua New Guinea on 23 April. Dame Carol was an MP for 15 years (1997-2012). The current PNG parliament (2017-2022) has no women members in its 111 seats.

As a female member of parliament what was the main challenge for you?
Dame Carol Kidu
As a female, the only female there, you’re kind of isolated. When you are in the NEC, the cabinet, and have a ministry, you are part of that.
