A second-generation Fiji Feminist, my journey in the movement stems from joining YWCA where I learnt about movement building, linking faith and feminism and practical application of media and communications for social, economic and political change. I acknowledge wo’mentors, feminists & peace activists who paved the way in addressing the intersection of gender, media, communications and non-violent action.
I have a passion for media content development and distribution and between 2000 - 2018 my work as co-founder of FemLINKPacific empowered community media production in print, digital story-telling, online/social media and television to increase visibility of women and young women’s viewpoints and realities by supporting the development of a regional women-led media organisation that has localized UNSCR1325 to bring Pacific women’s peace and security priorities to the attention of inter-governmental processes and civil society networks in particular GPPAC.
Adapting what Virginia Woolf wrote.. "we must as women, write, create, communicate - the whole person and all her experiences"
Collaborations to mobilize resources for independent women-led media content development, production and distribution;
Keen to support and exchange ideas on gender & media development especially using appropriate and accessible media platforms esp radio
