Improving the status of women and the Fijian government
“I want the women I care about to live a life of freedom, choice, adventure and achievement, and I want the same for all women in Fiji.”
Improving the status of women is a priority for the Fijian government.
Despite steps made towards female empowerment, Prime Minister Bainimarama admits that more needs to be done, with a focus on changes in attitudes and behaviours.
Bainimarama called for unity on the issue and a commitment to effectively implementing the National Gender Policy.
