THE Fiji Women's Crisis Centre's 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence came to an end on Monday.

Centre co-ordinator Shamima Ali said the 16 days of activism campaign was created to raise more awareness on violence against women and girls in the country.

Ms Ali said the main objective of the campaign was to get more women to be aware of what their rights were and for them to better understand what violence was and how they could address the issue.

"The event was held around the country where there were different activities which women could participate in, such as sporting events," she said.

"There were also workshops in the west, where women from the community were participants and in the north a march was held to mark the event.

"It gives women a chance to create awareness on violence against women and we have had great support over the last 16 days."
