Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, UN Women and Sancharika Samuha
Nepal, hosted a discussion on “Building Back Better and Safer for Gender Equality” to
observe the International Women’s Day 2016.The discussion, followed by the screening of videos produced by UN Women and Sancharika Samuha respectively and a presentation by Dr Bimala Rai Paudel, former NPC member, explored how the April/May earthquakes affected women more than men and focussed on better ways to address gender equality issues in the reconstruction process.

The series of earthquake that struck Nepal in April/May has affected many lives, specially women and children. It is necessary to address their needs, protect them, support them and help them grow from all aspects to create gender equality.
