Women are significantly under-represented in political and electoral processes everywhere in the world – be it as voters, candidates, elected representatives, or electoral administrators. Women’s political empowerment and equal access to leadership positions at all levels are fundamental to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and a more equal world. The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), ratified by Nepal in 1991, calls on state parties “to take appropriate measures to eliminate discrimination against women in political and public life”. Similarly, the Constitution of Nepal (2015) in Article 38-4 stipulates that “women shall have the right to participate in all bodies of the State on the basis of the principle of proportional inclusion”.
