Balancing the Scales
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.
Our Governance Board
The Fiji Women’s Rights Movement Governance Board consists of a vibrant group of women, with expertise ranging from human rights, law, banking & finance, academia, politics, trade, and community-based resource management and climate change adaptation.

... 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.
