Shamima Ali delivers keynote address at 3rd FSM Women Conference

Positive and life-giving aspects of culture and traditional practices should be revived rather than those that oppress and commit crimes on any section of society.

This was one of the many messages relayed to women of the Federated States of Micronesia today by Fiji Women’s Crisis Centre coordinator and long-time human rights activist Shamima Ali while delivering the keynote address at the 3rd FSM Women’s Conference.
