There are no laws limiting women’s hair style or dress in villages says Government Spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Neumi Leweni.

Leweni says some people have been spreading misleading reports that government is imposing laws on the women of this country.

“There has been some misinterpretation or people have been sending some wrong messages across in relation to females in villages being disallowed to wear shorts or long pants or other issues relating to young women. I’d like to state here that there has not been any law to that effect and there have been people spreading rumors on these and discrediting government.”

Leweni says those working against the government are the ones creating this misconception.

“I’d like to state here there is nothing of that sort - its only people who are trying to discredit government or discredit the Fijian community and are trying to create these type of issues to bring about divisions in the villages or settlements.”
