Call to respect women at work

Salaseini Moceiwai
Friday, May 23, 2014

POLICEMEN in the Northern Division have been urged to look after their female counterparts and treat them well in their workplaces.

"Respect women in your workplaces and treat them well," said Fiji Women's Crisis Centre executive director Shamima Ali during a workshop titled Eliminating Violence against Women, in Labasa this week.

"If you know that one of them is a victim of abuse or domestic violence in their homes, don't hesitate to step in and take action. Don't say that it's a private matter and it's none of your business.

"Report the matter if you know that your colleague is going through such situations."

Ms Ali also warned against personnel being perpetrators of domestic violence.

"If you know that one of your colleagues is a perpetrator, don't sweep the case under the carpet.

"Don't support your brother who is abusing his wife but be responsible and report the matter.

"This behaviour should be stopped and we can all work together to control it."
