SAPTARI: Various speakers have underscored the need to change oneself to end harmful traditional practices prevailing in society.

At a recent program ‘Prevalence of harmful traditional practices in society’ organized by the National Women Commission (NWC) in Rajbiraj, they said uprooting harmful traditional practices was possible through a collective campaign.

On the occasion, NWC member Jaya Ghimire noted the need of developing capacity to advocate in favor of violence survivors. “Social transformation along with political commitment, wide political leadership and right thinking could shun harmful practices and violence”, she said, urging all to conduct a shared campaign for this.

Chief of District Coordination Committee, Saptari, Prabhakar Yadav said it may be time-taking to end the time-honored and deep-rooted detrimental practices prevailing in societies.

Likewise, Chief District Office of Saptari, Janardan Gautam said women’s access to government service, property and politics has gradually increased and violence against women and discriminatory practices are declining in society. Law enforcement will also face complications until and unless society adopts them as norm, he said, underlining the need of effective education and awareness drive.

INSEC representative Manohar Pokharel had presented a working paper ‘Harmful practice and status of the district: Role of stakeholders’.

He argued that cynical mindset and conducts should be changed as structural discrimination was the cause of violence in society.
