Ending discrimination and social exclusion of indigenous peoples and other marginalised groups is one of the biggest challenges of the peace process in Nepal. Women belonging to marginalised groups face multiple discrimination and have been excluded from all spheres of development, as well as risking trafficking, domestic violence and other abuses without redress. The commitments that have been made by the parties to tackle these deep-rooted
issues are to be commended but must be translated into concrete actions. It is positive to note that the agreement this week between the Government and NEFIN includes provisions related to access to development for women.

Creating an inclusive Nepalese society will take time. But greater representation for marginalized groups in the Constituent Assembly – including greater representation of Janajati women - should provide an unprecedented opportunity for such groups to have a strong role in determining the shape and nature of the new Nepal. Ending discrimination against women is not only the role of Government and political parties, however.Indigenous groups themselves must ensure that their own communities fully respect the rights of all women and girls to participate equally in society, as well as to be protected from abuse.
