Collective effort

PREVENTING violence against women and children is everybody's business and not just the police.

Special Constable Mereseini Adivunisalusalu made the comment at the Vodafone Fiji Foundation Women's Workshop in Labasa yesterday.

Ms Adivunisalusalu told the women their families also played a role in fighting violence against women and children.

"It also begins from the home with our own families. Let us first talk to our families and then to the outside world later," she said.

"Most of us want to star with the police, church, vanua or other organisations that we think should handle sexual related cases.

"But let's not confuse ourselves and prioritise what's first which is our families."
