There is a greater need for representations of women in the board as well as any commercial entities to be spun off the proposed incorporated Rugby Fiji.
This was stated by the Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation, Lynda Tabuya while commending the Rooster Chicken Fijiana Drua team after they successfully defended their Super W title on Saturday night.
Tabuya says she was excited about the possibilities for our women especially in the face of adversities on their tours and calls on Fiji Rugby Union in its restructure to ensure gender mainstreaming and gender responsive budgeting in its policies and programs.
Tabuya who was invited by Rugby Australia to attend the Super W final acknowledged how important it was that government was represented at senior levels to showcase not only support for our women, but to show solidarity in the Vuvale Partnership PacificAus Sports programme that has enabled access to elite competitions and pathways for our women and girls.
Tabuya also acknowledged the valuable support of the Australian government through DFAT to fund various sporting programs to realise gender equality in sports and knows that more can be done.
Tabuya was accompanied by Permanent Secretary for Youth & Sports Rovereto Nayacalevu and FRU Interim Administrator Simione Valenitabua.
