Women Economic Empowerment Requires Bold Action
PDF File Size: 453 KB | Download   
On International Women's Day, the UN in Nepal recognizes the way of shifting the ideas and beliefs that prevent women from fully realizing the roles and valuable contribution to sustainable development.One last piece of this puzzle is the economic empowerment of women,which makes sense,in business,in rights,and in development.Women paid work in Nepal is overwhelmingly in agriculture sector,and many of those women lack in access to education, healthcare,and economic mobility.Women in other work lack job security,decent wages,and protection against sexual violence.

But when women economically empowered,adequately trained and educated,every one benefits nobody is left behind.The gender wage gap in Nepal is persistently high.In Nepal while women work as much as men,the gender wage gap is still in the buttom of the world ranking 110th out of 144 countries.And yet,Nepal is improving its representation of women in decision making roles.In 2016, women held the 30 percent of the parliamentary position,sharp increase from years before.
