|Title||Education and the “new” inequality in Papua New Guinea|
|Publisher||Wiley Online Library|
This article argues that studies of growing socioeconomic stratification in Papua New Guinea have ignored or dismissed gender as a source of inequality. The article focuses on educational opportunity as the key to wealth and political power and shows that the most educationally disadvantaged group in Papua New Guinea is rural women. Data from national censuses, the author's field work, and literature concerning stratification are used to support the argument.
