Executive Director of Femlink Fiji, Fay Volatabu
Executive Director of Femlink Fiji, Fay Volatabu, emphasized the necessity of ensuring that current climate change policies are gender-sensitive.
While speaking at the two-day climate change conference, Volatabu stressed the need to utilize language that respects all groups and avoids gender-specific words to promote inclusivity in climate change conversations.
“I know that we all like to talk about history; in the feminist world, we don’t say history; we say her story because it’s not just about his story; it’s also about her story. So that is a very direct use of language.”
The Executive Director emphasized the significance of using language that acknowledges the different experiences of the female population.
As climate change is a significant worldwide concern, Femlink Fiji is committed to ensuring that policies are not only environmentally sustainable but also socially equitable and inclusive.
