Strength within us; transformation through us - Newsletter Volume IX

“Women Rights are Human Rights”. This requires the translation of rhetoric to reality. The Constitution of Nepal 2015 guarantees equal rights to women. However, even this could not be upheld by major political parties. A decreasing trend of women’s representation from 1st local election to presently held local election can be taken as evidence. Tarangini believes that women's political and public participation goes beyond just increasing their numbers. For women to impact laws and practices, they need to have actual influence in decision-making. The role of women as transformative leaders is important in a country where women are often forced to live in silence or without justice due to various forms of violence in public and private spheres.
