The Fiji Women’s Crisis Centre, Fiji Women’s Rights Movement and femLINKpacific launched the 16 Days of Activism Against Violence Against Women at the Tanoa Plaza, Suva, this morning (November 24).

The trio called on the media to join the campaign to highlight violence against women and girls.

They said recent data showed that the COVID-19 pandemic had had a huge impact on violence against women and girls – with an increased number of domestic violence, sexual harassment, rape, attempted rape, child rape, child sexual abuse and child physical, verbal, emotional and abuse cases.
