Rashmii Bell


Papua New Guinean writer, Rashmii Bell, edited the first-ever anthology of writing by Papua New Guinean women, My Walk to Equality. Launched in Port Moresby (PNG) and Brisbane  during the week of celebrations for International Women’s Day 2017, this volume captures the daily challenges faced and positive contributions being made by the women of PNG to improve the livelihoods of self, community and nation.  Living in Brisbane, Rashmii’s writing is regularly published via her on-line home of writing , Keith Jackson and Friends: PNG Attitude. The Australia- PNG relations specific blog has been  key in elevating Rashmii’s views in relation to socio-economic development within Papua New Guinea. Occasionally using satire, Rashmii writes essays and opinion commentary to convey her views on issues including anti-social and criminal behaviour, mental health, donor aid programs and gender equality.  Several of Rashmii’s essay’s have been published in Pukpuk Publication’s annual paperback anthologies, Crocodile Prize 2015 and Crocodile Prize 2016.
