WOMEN: PEACE, HUMAN SECURITY & DEVELOPMENT UPDATE A FEMLINKPACIFIC POLICY BRIEF FEBRUARY 2014

As we began February we were reviewing the findings of our Womens Human Security First baseline assessment visits through our rural “1325” network in Fiji.

As a result of meeting 78 rural women leaders, representing close to 8000 women, in January 2014, we have heard again that despite gender equality commitments consultations and meetings where community development priorities are identified and endorsed remain underrepresented by women. Today many women are still discouraged from speaking up in their families or in community meetings.

In January we heard from 42 year old Sangeeta Devi who lives in the Vatukoula Back Road. Hers is a voice of frustration of having to pay more for electricity supplied by the mine than a woman who lives in Suva. She is just one of the 1125 rural women who have featured in our community radio programmes over the past year – she yearns for the security of her children’s education and the reassurance of access to nutritious food for her family and proper water supply to drink.
