Nepal has ingrained traditions and seats of power that are occupied by the same sectors of society. But the shift following the promulgation of the constitution to historic elections is showing that society is rethinking and redefining what it means to lead.
In Nepal, this ground-swell for women’s rights, equality and justice has resulted in significant changes. The 2017 elections saw a historic number of women running and becoming elected officials, from the local level in the Gau and Nagar Palikas to the Provincial Assemblies and National Parliament. More than 14,000 women have taken up office. Many of these women are not professional politicians, but they come from every corner of Nepali society: small entrepreneurs, farmers, mothers, teachers. They were all motivated to actively participate in decisions that affect them, their families, their communities and their livelihoods.
The press release was attended by Elisabeth Von Capeller, Ambassador of Switzerland, Veronica Cody, Ambassador of European Union, Valarie Julliand, UN
Resident Coordinator, Mashfee Shams, Ambassador of Bangladesh and ALAINA B Teplitz, Ambassador of the United States.
