When it comes to woman empowerment there need to be a lot of changes introduced, especially for those who face family and social problems, says Ansu Vikashni Lata, the National Federation Party can­didate.

“I think when women are single and divorced it is a more challenging life, especially to come into politics,” she said.

“I want women like us from the grassroots to get into poli­tics.

“To secure a higher status we have to struggle to get up there because we don’t get opportunities.

“In Fiji today so much has been done for women, but when it comes to employment and career pathways, we are left behind.

“Why women are afraid to go into politics?

“Because most of the time women are not taken into con­sideration.”

Her other focus will be on youths.

But first let’s go through the profile of the NFP candidate political profile.
