Privacy Policy

The mediation related provisions in the bill on constituting Truth and Reconciliation Commission should be made women-friendly.

At an interaction programme jointly organized here on Wednesday by National Women Commission and Shanti Malika, women rights activists stressed that the reconciliation commission, which is on the process of setup, should be women-focused.

Journalist Babita Basnet said the growing incidents of gender-based violence including rape and assault on women on charge of practicing witchcraft across the country of late should be stopped by all means.

Advocate Hari Phuyal said the formation of TRC, albeit late, is a positive development stressing that all sides should engage efforts to bring it to right direction.

Women right activist Mandira Sharma said the political parties should give due space to women and demanded that the state should also offer equal participation of women in its organs.
