BREAKING BARRIERS

Shayal Devi
Sunday, January 27, 2013

In this chaotic world, it is often difficult for a person to find that one voice which can fill his or her world with hope.

This is especially true for women in many parts of the world.

In Fiji, organisations such as the Fiji Women's Crisis Centre, National Women's Council, FemLink and the Fiji Women's Rights Movement have been trying to be the voice, heavily involving themselves in issues that advocate for the betterment of the lives of women in Fiji.

The FWRM, for one, has been playing a fundamental role in this cause. With educating young women being a top priority for this organisation, the Emerging Leaders Alumni Forum was formed. ELAF is made up of a group of talented women aged between 18 and 35 years who have chosen to take a stand against the increasing violence against women. Here, we profile three inspiring women from ELAF who are advocating for a better Fiji in which there are no racial and gender barriers.
