Josepha Kiris or as some may have known her - Josepha Kanawi - was one of Papua New Guinea's most respected women leaders.  Ms Kiris, a former Secretary of the PNG Law Reform Commission, was a driving force behind the criminalisation of wife beating and a constant voice urging the PNG government to acknowledge the skills and experience of senior female public servants by elevating them to executive roles in national agencies.

Ms Kiris dies in early April 2017.
