Progress of Women in Nepal (1995-2015) SUBSTANTIVE EQUALITY : NON- NEGOTIABLE
PDF File Size: 2.96 MB | Download   
Twenty years has passed since UN member countries and civil society activists gathered in Beijing for the Fourth World Conference on Women, which conducted with the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (BPfA). This year, in 2015, the international community reviewed the progress in the implementation of the commitments agreed in Beijing. The Beijing+20 review has taken place at a very strategic moment as the world has concluded the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and decided on the shape of the post2015 development agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); this concurrence created an important opportunity to position gender equality and women’s empowerment (GEWE) at the centre of the global agenda, both as an important end in itself and as an essential means for the achievement of sustainable development in all its dimensions. It is now up to each country to exploit this opportunity to work towards ensuring substantive equality to women, putting gender equality and women’s empowerment at the centre of SDGs. This report seeks to address the lack of consolidated analysis of the overall status of women in Nepal since the adoption of BPfA in 1995 until 2015. In recognition of the need to strengthen the evidence base to provide relevant data, analysis and good practices to inform gender-responsive policy and programming, the report examines the progress of women in Nepal over the 20-year period in three particular areas: freedom from violence, capabilities and resources, and voice, leadership and participation.
