Minister for Women Lynda Tabuya says the ministry is working on the National Action Plan to Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls with the aim of helping eradicate the scourge of domestic violence.

Speaking at the Makoi Women’s Vocational Training Centre yesterday, Ms Tabuya said the national action plan was a whole of Government, whole of population, evidence-based, measurable and inclusive five-year plan.

“The key strategies of this plan include promoting respectful relationships between women and men, girls and boys, community mobilisation to promote and normalise gender equality in public and private spaces, communication and media initiatives, school-based programs, response service and women’s economic empowerment,” she said.

Ms Tabuya said the Government would continue to work towards implementing inclusive and innovative policies and programmes for the development of women entrepreneurship in Fiji.
