The study sought to understand the processes of shifting harmful social norms that drive family and sexual violence in Solomon Islands. It provides insights into the strict gendered norms and gendered roles at individual, relationship, community and societal levels, the practise of bride price and how these practises, norms and attitudes relate to violence against women.
