The Ministry for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation has congratulated Salote Panapasa and Ana Salaivalu Mataiciwa, for their recent appointments as the Acting Commissioner of Fiji Corrections Service and Acting Supervisor of Elections, respectively.

The Minister, Lynda Tauya, says Panapasa and Mataiciwa have proven themselves as capable women leaders, who possess the required skill and knowledge to lead these two important organizations.

Tabuya says it is about equal opportunity employment and making every effort to level the playing field for women and men.

She adds this is their commitment as the coalition government and with a leader like Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka, who is a strong advocate for gender equality.

Tabuya also says the Government is committed to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals adopted by world leaders, embodying a roadmap for progress that is sustainable and leaves no one behind.

The Minister further says they will continue to work closely with government agencies and stakeholders in achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment is integral to each of the 17 goals.

She adds by ensuring the rights of women and girls across all the goals, they will get to justice and inclusion, economies that work for all, and sustaining the shared environment now and for future generations.

Tabuya says the agenda to increase women’s participation in political leadership is receiving universal support through the Sustainable Development Goals 5.5 which seeks to ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal leadership opportunities, and at all levels of decision-making in political, economic and public life.

The Minister also says she commends all women holding leadership positions throughout government, civil society, the private sector, the community and throughout Fiji.

She also says the future belongs to women and girls.
