The Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation  Mereseini Vuniwaqa has encouraged Pacific feminists to stay strong in sisterhood and stay united in comradely because the battle they are fighting is extremely important but it is also a difficult one.

She made this statement while officially opening the 2nd Pacific Feminist Forum held at the Pearl Resort in Pacific Harbour this morning.

“It is important that Pacific Feminists have continuous engagement within a collective space to collectively map points of commonality on identified issues, and present strong, collective pacific feminist positions within regional and global level dialogues and decision-making forums.”

The three –day forum with the theme ‘Sustaining Solidarity, Resistance and Revolution’ will see 150 diverse women from across the Pacific reflect on key issues paramount to gender equality and women’s rights, and facilitate opportunities for collaboration to effect positive change for all women and girls within our respective regional communities.
