UN Statement for 16 Days of Activism against Violence against Women 2013
PDF File Size: 270 KB | Download   
A nation cannot prosper, cannot reach its full potential unless girls and women are empowered economically, politically and are free from any kind of violence. The United Nations Secretary-General at the General Assembly stated that: 'empowerment and rights of women must be at the heart of everything we do. The equation is simple: when women’s lives are free from violence and discrimination, nations thrive. Let the 21st century be the century of women.’
The Government of Nepal has made a number of commitments at the international level to end violence against women and girls by ratifying international human rights instruments, including the Convention to Eliminate All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). Earlier this year, Nepal agreed to a global roadmap of actions, adopted at the 57th session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). The Government is finalizing an action plan to address the CSW Agreed Conclusions, and will facilitate a coordinated response to address violence against women and girls effectively and efficiently. This should strengthen the implementation of the Government of Nepal’s existing five year Strategy and National Plan of Action related to Gender Empowerment and Ending Gender Based Violence and the National Action Plan on UN Security Council Resolutions 1325 and 1820. These plans set concrete goals for zero tolerance for violence against women, establishing one stop crisis management centres for the protection of survivors/ victims, gender mainstreaming in economic and social development programmes, and ensuring greater access to justice through free legal aid and fast track courts. They also provide an institutional mechanism to assist women and girls in reporting acts of violence.
