PDF File Size: 86 KB | Download   
The celebration of this year’s International Women’s Day coincides with a historic moment in Nepal: preparation for the Constituent Assembly election which is a major step in the democratic transition to economic and social change in an inclusive Nepal. This provides an important opportunity to take action to ensure that women from all backgrounds play leading roles in all aspects of this transition. As Nepali women activists continue to remind us all, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
