Men are advocating for women's economic empowerment

Semi believes that men have an important role to play in transforming the social norms that discriminate against women.

Semi works for Rise Beyond the Reef in Fiji, helping rural women and connecting them to markets for their handicrafts. Semi notes that women’s economic empowerment and a long term trusted relationship between the social enterprise and community partners can provide the opportunity to tackle more challenging issues such as violence.
