Fiji Women's Crisis Centre
It provides crisis counselling and legal, medical and other practical support services for women and children who are sufferers and survivors of violence committed against them by men.

Fiji Women's Rights Movement
The Fiji Women's Rights Movement was formed in 1986 by a group of women who believed that changes can happen if the law treats women and men equally. It was therefore very important that a group be established to primarily lobby for law reforms.
