This introductory chapter sets out the book's purpose, which is to investigate the global vision of a Pan-Pacific women's community. It details the formation of the Pan-Pacific Women's Association (PPWA) in 1930, which went on to convene several high-profile international gatherings in and around the Pacific to promote global perspectives on the status and conditions of women in the region, and on democracy and international cooperation. Inspired by the cross-cultural and interracial politics characterizing its cultural internationalist outlook, the association and its conferences captured the imagination of several generations of women activists of the Pacific Rim and the Pacific Basin. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
