Update: 2:41PM ONE thousand nine hundred women have registered so far to be part of the first Womens Expo in the country on Wednesday.

Out of the 1900 women, 187 will be part of the Women and Childrens Summit and 50 women will be part of the Marama ni Yavusa program that will be held the Great Council of Chiefs Complex in Suva.

Women will get the chance to talk about issues on gender violence, the domestic violence decree, womens leadership role, how to generate income and discuss about the child welfare decree during the week.

Women Minister Dr Jiko Luveni said the expo and the two summits would give a lot of exposure to women from the rural and maritime areas in terms of better understanding their role in the community.
