WHEN I was at a gathering at the University of Goroka, there was a point where four women were on stage - Mama Daisy and three academics.
'Mama' Daisy Samuel is from Lower Bena in the Unggai-Bena district where she is president of the Ward 2 women’s association and a sling bag maker.
There came a comment from an audience member (a Moresby-based Papua New Guinean academic).
"I see three women on stage,” she said, and proceeded to compliment them about their work. She did not "see" Mama Daisy.
