FIJI’S Assistant Minister for Women Veena Bhatnagar believes women have the ability to make a positive and impacting difference in society.

In opening the International Women’s Day celebration in Labasa today, Ms Bhatnagar said for too long society and the world had seen women as being vulnerable

But she said this had changed as women continued to make a difference around the world and had taken up leadership roles and contributed positively to society.

About 500 women attended the celebration held at the civic centre.
