    Candid Report Charts path for Nepali Women trapped by Discrimination and Poverty

    Systematic discrimination pervades women’s lives in Nepal and has stripped most Nepalese women of their dignity, self-respect and confidence, says a radical new report launched today in Kathmandu. The Nepal Human Development Report 2004 says that the country’s Constitution provides protection for women in Nepal, but the Government has not taken significant action to implement its provision.

This forthright publication offers a specific and practical “reform agenda” recommending “radical shifts in policies, priorities and institutions.”
