Kathmandu, March 8: Nepali Congress (NC) President and former Prime Minister, Sher Bahadur Deuba, has insisted on the need of increased civic awareness to combat all kinds of violence against women.

Extending his best wishes to the entire Nepali women on the occasion of the 114th International Women’s Day today, the former Prime Minister said women from urban to rural areas in Nepal still continue to suffer violence and discrimination, exploitation and suppression.

Acknowledging the contribution of Nepali women to the establishment and restoration of democracy in the country, the former Prime Minister expressed his hope that the Nepali women will have more roles in the promotion and institutionalization of democratic norms and values in the days to come.

Women’s political rights are established: Speaker Ghimire

He wished peace, prosperity and happiness to all on this occasion. Speaker Ghimire believed the Day would inspire all to involve in the campaign for women’s rights. In the message of best wishes, he said, “The women’s movements waged at different times have established women’s political rights. Political rights are for equality, freedom, opportunity, access, identity and status in the world.”

It is imperative to build positive thoughts, strong will and commitment for women empowerment, according to him.

Former President Bhandari’s message on Women’s Day

Former President Bidya Devi Bhandari has wished peace, prosperity and happiness to all sisters and brothers living in the country and abroad on the occasion of the 114th Women’s Day today.

The Women’s Day is marked globally, expressing solidarity to the campaign for women’s rights and gender equality. The Day is observed this year under the theme, ‘Invest in women: Accelerate progress.’

In the message, the former President reminded that Nepal has made remarkable achievements in the constitutional, legal and policy fronts for women rights and gender equality, which she argued, were resulted after various awareness campaigns and movements launched for social justice, women rights and gender equality.

The constitution has fundamentally enshrined the rights of women as their participation and representations at State agencies. Women’s role has been strengthened at all three tiers of government, parliament and policy levels.

She wished the Women’s Day inspired everyone to continue their journey towards equality by ending social ills, violence and oppressions meted out against women. #Nepal
