New Report Shows Cultural Sensitivity Critical to Successful Development Strategies, Women's Equality
PDF File Size: 60 KB | Download   
The report focuses on the basic fact the international human rights framework has universal validity. Human rights express values common to all cultures and protect groups as well as individuals. The report endorses culturally sensitive approaches - to develop and promote of human rights, in general, and women’s rights, in particular. This is especially relevant to Nepal, where under the umbrella of human rights, traditional forms of discrimination based on gender, caste and ethnicity are being addressed in the process of building a ‘New Nepal’. Despite many declarations and affirmations in support of women’rights, the report argues, gender inequality is widespread and deep-rooted in many cultures. Coercive power relations underlie practices such as child marriage—a leading cause of uterine prolapse and maternal death—and chaupadhi and dheuki.
