Women's issues

Saturday, February 15, 2014

WOMEN'S issues must be on the agenda for all political parties in the lead-up to the 2014 General Election, says Fiji Women's Crisis Centre co-ordinator Shamima Ali.

"We are a non-partisan organisation but we are very political in our advocacy and lobbying for women's human rights," she said.

"As one of the strategies, the centre is preparing a paper to be submitted to every political party and to anyone contesting the next elections for the protection and promotion of women's human rights.

"Included in this is women's access to justice, economic empowerment, women's participation in development, nation building, women's equal access to resources, women in decision making and environmental degradation and its impact on women."

Ms Ali said officials from the centre were available to speak on women's issues at political party events or meetings held by independent candidates.
