Women’s participation at local level guaranteed: Minister Koirala


TANAHU–Minister for Women and Children Asha Koirala has said women’s right to property has been guaranteed and the need of the hour is to prod the bodies concerned its implementation.

Opening the seventh unity district convention of All Nepal Women Association (Revolutionary) here Sunday, the Minister said women’s participation at the local level was ensured through the recent local-level elections.

Now, time has come for women to move ahead strongly to institutionalize the achievements made so far in their favor. “Women are not still safe, cases of violence against women are yet to reduce and the government is preparing to set up an immediate rescue committee to respond to the VAW cases.”

“Women-targeted self-employment program are in the offing, so as to make them self-dependent,” she said. RSS
