The role of women in Micronesian society.
Women are the foundation on which the pillars of our society(Micronesian)lay upon. it is also the women that we get our clans and inheritance and place in society from. In the marshall islands if war broke out between clans anf brothers,as it did between the the chiefs of majuro atoll,the two chiefs of majuro who were brothers fought a long and devestating war for controll of that island would have fought to the dead untill their eldest sister leimakua told them to stop and they did stop their war upon each other,this shows that women in the past held comsiderable influence and respect but now days we men tell them to keep silence and dont intervier in politics. We men have forgotten that its by and thru the grace of our women that we are here and alive. We must respect our women and protect them cause if not then who will.
