“Violence against women and girls is rooted in gender based discrimination and gender inequality.
It is rooted in centuries of male domination, traditional gender norms about what it means to be a man or woman as well as peer relations that promote often aggression and disrespect towards women and girls.
There is no doubt that the action to stop violence against women and girls in Fiji must be taken now; and it must happen in full force and through every possible avenue.
Violence not only affects the victim and survivors themselves, but the children who are exposed to it, their extended families, their friends, their work colleagues and ultimately the broader community.
There ¡s no doubt that the action to stop violence against women and girls in Fiji must be taken now; and it must happen in full force and through every possible avenue” – Alvick Maharaj while addressing members of the media during the Press Conference on the #Fiji_National_Plan_to_Prevent_Violence_Against_Women_And_Girls
