Eight women in Fiji have lost their lives to domestic violence this year.

As of June this year, there have been 295 cases of domestic violence in Fiji within 180 days.

In Fiji, 64% of women experience intimate partner violence.

According to Fiji Women’s Rights Movement 2017 research, it takes women over 2.5 years to report their issues of violence.
