(p.218) Conclusion
Glamour in the Pacific

Fiona Paisley

University of Hawai'i Press

This concluding chapter first describes the eighth Pan-Pacific and South East Asia Women's Association (PPSEAWA) conference held in Tokyo, Japan, in 1958. It then argues that the first thirty years of the Pan-Pacific Women's Association (PPWA) offer a unique insight into on-the-ground political, social, and intellectual encounters. In the process of those encounters, its members created an innovative, cross-cultural network that provided a series of stages for some remarkable exchanges between representatives of its diverse constituency, the women of the Pacific. In these years, they created a decidedly glamorous internationalism, comprising extraordinary individuals, exotic locations, and remarkable performances of cultural difference. The women's Pan-Pacific contributed to a larger genealogy of international cooperation and outlook existing alongside imperial and colonial politics in modern world history.
