Women's voices enrich Nepali public life

Women in Nepal are actively participating and involving themselves in the political as well as developmental activities. Role models like Bidhya Devi Bhandari, Onsari Gharti Magar and Sushila Karki demonstrate that women and girls in Nepal can participate and can be leaders. Women in power encourage and motivate other women and girls to follow their footsteps.
Gender roles are changing, with or without the consent of the women and due to various reasons. The hardships that they have to face due to the change in gender roles has made women, especially women of the rural areas, vulnerable towards crime and gender-based violence which should be addressed by supporting them and hearing their troubles. Everyone is responsible to encourage and support women to get involved. It is important to realize the need for women's participation and building strong gender equal communities for a better future of Nepal.
