Meeting the Benchmark is Critical
September 29, 2015
Dr Jiko Luveni has brought women’s representation in parliament into focus to motivate efforts to meet the UN’s critical benchmark target of 30%. Although Fiji is considered among the most successful governments in terms of improving women’s political representation in the Pacific, numbers are far from ideal.
IWDA’s Funding Leadership and Opportunities for Women program works with local civil society organisations including Fiji Women’s Rights Movement, Commonwealth Local Government Forum and FemLINKPACIFIC, to continue to promote the benefits of improving women’s leadership in Fiji.
