Peni Moore describes the work of Women’s Action for Change in Fijian prisons. The group uses drama as an educational tool. The main goal was to help offenders understand the impact of their behaviors and to help them learn non-violent ways of dealing with conflict. The group worked to change attitudes towards domestic violence.
