Solomon Islands: women confronting violence

This report recommends a number of general and some specific measures to boost efforts which will increase women’s protection from violence, assist their confidence in and cooperation with the justice system and boost their equality. The report seeks to give a voice to women and girls whose experience during the conflict has hardly been reported although women clearly suffered at least as much and sometimes more than men from the consequences of what is locally often called the tension. In addition, the report makes recommendations aimed at using the RAMSI intervention as a unique opportunity to boost the promotion of, and knowledge about human rights generally, and to make human rights protection more widely accessible to women and girls.
