Men become resilient advocates

Repeka Nasiko

MALE advocates of women's human rights have developed a thick skin against other men who criticise their work.

The advocates from Fiji, PNG, Tonga, Vanuatu and the Cook Islands have been part of the Stage Four Pacific Regional Male Advocacy Training of Trainers organised by the Fiji Women's Crisis Centre.

FWCC co-ordinator Shamima Ali said the men from government departments, religious organisations and non-profit organisations had become more resilient after undergoing the four-stage program that began in 2002.

"They've really developed a thick skin against criticism and now they know how better they can respond to the hard questions asked by members of the community," she said.

"What we are doing is help them in the work they are already doing to raise awareness of women's human rights."
