Update: 5:16PM FIJI Women's Rights Movement (FWRM) executive director Nalini Singh says it is important to present sex disaggregated data to reflect the realities of how men and women were impacted by sexual violence.

Her call comes after the latest media update from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) revealed a total of 227 people were charged with 444 separate counts of serious sexual offences last year.

"The data validates concerns on the prevalence of the issue and that women and girls make up a distinct majority of the victims and survivors," Ms Singh said.

She mentioned that work was being done by civil society organisations and the formal justice sector agencies but it was everybody's responsibility to be informed on those issues.
