Mele Mauala talks gender-based violence and Samoa’s State of Human Rights report
September 6, 2015
Mele Mauala, the country programme coordinator for UN Women in Samoa, discusses the inaugural State of Human Rights report on Pacific Beat. This report highlights women as some of the most vulnerable people in Samoan society, but also provides an opportunity to unite in addressing violence against women.
She addresses the way that cultural norms can change by focusing on the core root of the justifications used to commit gender-based violence.
