UN Nepal Statement On Violence Against Women and Girls in Nepal
PDF File Size: 47 KB | Download   
Recent highly publicized cases of rape, murder and disappearance of Nepalese women have rightly sparked off protests against the wider issue of violence against women and girls in Nepal. Sadly these cases are only a few out of many more cases of gender-based violence in the country, including instances of physical, sexual, psychological, socio-cultural and economic violence. Violence against women and girls is a form of discrimination as well as a violation of human rights. The wide public attention that is now being generated has created momentum that we cannot allow to simply subside. It must be supported if real change is to occur in Nepal and globally. Nepal has made strong normative and legal commitments to ending gender-based violence and inequality.It has ratified the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women CEDAW), thereby legally binding itself to put the CEDAW provisions into practice. A Domestic Violence Act and a 5-year national strategy and action plan for ending gender-based violence have been put in place.
