Social Protections During COVID-19

We Rise is a dynamic, learning Coalition, currently led by three independent and feminist organisations:

The Fiji Women’s Rights Movement is a multiethnic and multicultural non-government organisation committed to removing discrimination against women through institutional reform and attitudinal change. It strives to empower, unite and provide leadership opportunities for women in Fiji, especially for emerging young leaders.

FemLINKPACIFIC is a feminist media and policy network committed to empowering women, people with disability and rural communities in Fiji through a vibrant information and communications network which is enabling diverse women to participate and lead in local and national governance structures.

IWDA is an Australian-based organisation, resourcing diverse women’s rights organisations primarily in Asia and the Pacific, and contributing to global feminist movements to advance our vision of gender equality for all.

The Coalition amplifies, resources and organises with diverse Pacific organisations working towards gender justice, ecological sustainability, peace, democratic freedoms and human rights for all.
