We are..

the Fiji Women’s Rights Movement (FWRM), a multiethnic and multicultural non-governmental organisation committed to removing discrimination against women through institutional reforms and attitudinal changes, by means of core programmes as well as innovative approaches.

Our Vision

The Movement’s vision is for the women of Fiji to be free from all forms of discrimination, have equal access to opportunities and to live in a healthy environment where the principles of feminism, democracy, good governance, multiculturalism and human rights prevail.


Our Team

The Fiji Women’s Rights Movement is operated by a dynamic team of feminists and queer activists who constantly strive to empower, unite and provide leadership opportunities for women in Fiji, especially for emerging young leaders.

Herstory

celebrating 30 years of balancing the scales...

... in 2011 we published a Herstory booklet chronicling the Fiji Women’s Right’s Movement’s quarter century history. While it was impossible to capture everything the Movement has undertaken in the past three decades, the publication captures all the significant moments, which include our humble beginnings in 1986 after a need was identified by our sister organisation, the Fiji Women’s Crisis Centre and some members of the Young Women’s Christian Association to establish a lobbying group reforming laws that discriminated against women and girls. 

Another significant moment captured is how FWRM has and continues to maintain a strong stance on human rights, the rule of law and democracy during all the coups despite being persecuted by the military.
