Remarks by Richard Bennett Representative of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, in Nepal At the 2nd National Convention of Campaign for Human Rights & Social Transformation (CAHURAST) 8 March 2009, Kathmandu

Today, March 8, is International Women’s Day. This year’s theme is Women and
Men Unite to End Violence Against Women and Girls. The responsibility for ending
violence is at least as much men’s as it is women’s. I would like to recognize the women here today and to offer my solidarity for women’s equality and for an end to all violence against women and girls.
The name of CAHURAST, linking human rights with social transformation, indicates
the focus of your organization. In many societies where human rights are denied,
fulfilling them does indeed require a social transformation. The vision that many have of a new Nepal is the same as the vision of fulfilling all human rights for all in Nepal and is key to the long term success of the peace process.
