Reclaim the Night March to bring about visibility to issues of rape and violence against women – Ali

7 Mar, 2019

Reclaim the Night March is a small part of the larger initiative to bring about visibility to issues of rape and violence against women in Fiji.

Fiji Women’s Crisis Centre Coordinator Shamima Ali says the march also allows people to come together and show their opposition towards this kind of action towards women and children.

Ali says that the youngest rape victim in Fiji is a 4-month-old baby and the oldest is a 90-year-old and these cases are now coming to light because more and more people are talking about this issue.

The Reclaim the Night March that coincides with International Women’s Day will begin at 6.30pm tomorrow from the Suva Flea Market to Government Buildings.
