Let’s end violence against women in the Pacific

Let’s end violence against women in the Pacific

Pacific women suffer some of the highest levels of violence against women in the world. Approximately two in three Pacific women have reported experiencing physical and / or sexual violence from their spouse or partner. Indeed, many studies have shown that Pacific women and men believe that men are justified in perpetrating violence against their intimate partners.

This month, UN Women Australia is calling for our members and supporters to join with us in supporting the Pacific Facility Fund to End Violence against Women. The Pacific Facility Fund was established in March 2009 to provide much needed funding, development and learning opportunities for individual women and grassroots organisations working to end violence against women in the Pacific. Currently, government departments and NGOs in Fiji, Kiribati, the Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea and Nauru receive support and with our support the Pacific Facility Fund can continue to expand to other countries in the Pacific Region.
