Kathmandu, March 8, 2017: A march-past was held from Samakhushi Chowk to Macchapokhari Chowk on Wednesday, celebrating the 107th International Women’s Day.
The event was attended by representatives from around a half dozen of organisations including the Positive Development Communications Center, Sushmita Foundation, Youth Advocacy Nepal and Progressive Women Society.
CPN-UML lawmaker Sher Bahadur Tamang, delivering his speech following the conclusion of the event, said the Nepal’s constitution has given more rights to the women and such rights would be ensured only with the enforcement of the country’s main law.
Presently women occupying three key posts of the State — President, Chief Justice and Speaker– is an achievement of the constitution, he added. Women making up more than fifty percent of the country’s population should continue their struggle for their rights, he said further.
