The Rights of Indigenous Women in Nepal

Together with our partner in Nepal, the National Indigenous Women's Forum, we put forward a report to the UN presenting 15 recommendations on guaranteeing equal rights for Indigenous women in Nepal. We made progress: the UN's Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women's (CEDAW) 71st session (October 22 -November 9, 2018) included all our recommendations in their concluding observations to the government of Nepal. This was a historic victory for NIWF and for Indigenous women, including those with disabilities, in Nepal.
