The mission of PLU’s Women’s Center is to empower women and their allies to become advocates for gender equity and social justice. We accomplish this through education, mentoring, outreach, and celebration as well as by fostering a safe space and inclusive communities.
This documentary is a powerful film about the struggle to maintain Pacific Islander culture and values within the Westernized society of contemporary Hawaiʻi.
