Tonga – International Women’s Day

Tonga recognised the harm caused by Domestic Violence on International Women’s Day.  The local newspaper, Matangi Tonga, carries an excellent story on this event.  The local initiative to produce a brochure on the harm that results, and linking this back to reported cases in an anonymous way, is a great way to raise awareness.

The Tonga Government will consider a Family Protection Bill later this year.
