Gender violence

Felix Chaudhary
Wednesday, March 26, 2014

GENDER, violence against women and human rights and legal training conducted by the Fiji Women's Crisis Centre with police in the Western Division is being used as a pilot program which will be taken to other Pacific Island countries.

This is according to centre co-ordinator Shamima Ali.

Speaking at the close of a week-long workshop attended by 37 policemen and women, Ms Ali said the program was developed in response to a request from the police.

It also took into account the large number of complaints made about the manner in which women and girls were treated when reporting domestic violence or sexual abuse to the police.

"The privilege is ours in being able to come and train officers again on gender and the law," she said.

"This training provided us with an opportunity to pilot this module which we hope to then use both in Fiji and in the Pacific, targeting police officers."
