BUTWAL: Women Forum-2080 organized at Tilottama has concluded by drawing the attention of the government to ensure inclusive participation of women in all levels and structures of the State.

The Forum has issued a 14-point Declaration. The declaration demanded to maintain proportional inclusive representation by making special arrangements in every structure of the state, to take transitional justice to a conclusion, to increase access of women and all marginalized communities to justice, and to end unequal power relations.

Amendment to a bill related to transitional justice presented in the Parliament also was demanded in the declaration.

Chairperson of the National Alliance for Women Human Rights Defenders, Dr. Renu Adhikari, shared that guarantee of justice to conflict victims was also demanded.

On the occasion, a commitment was made to lead and collaborate to formulate and implement a special plan and program for decisive leadership exercise with women’s proportional and inclusive participation for political, economic, social, and cultural transformation.

The Declaration mentioned that the voice, participation, and leadership of young women and girls would be maintained in order to prepare and implement the projects to develop intergenerational transformational leadership.

“We are committed to developing plans and implementing them from a rights-based approach by adopting the principles of a victim-centered system while facilitating the violence and conflict-affected women in the judicial process and providing them with services,” the Declaration states.

It is also stated that leadership would be taken and collaboration forged for putting to an end all types of discriminatory practices impacting women’s health and sexuality by formulating the required policy and fully defining the health for ensuring women’s sexual and reproductive rights.

The Declaration also expresses commitment to take initiatives for the formulation and implementation of policies at the local and provincial level for ensuring environmental justice as well as to guarantee the participation and leadership of the self-representative group in the development, implementation, and assessment of the policy.

The Declaration calls for the implementation of the women’s right to parental property, right to information, right to education, and the right to proportional and inclusive leadership as provided in the Constitution by making an analysis of the negative impact the patriarchal control over internal, political and economic resources is having on women’s leadership.

The Women Forum with the slogan, ‘Ensuring justice, equality, and environmental rights – a guarantee of sustainable development with the social transformation’, held discussions on various topics including ‘Transitional Justice and Challenges’, ‘My Body, Other’s Control,’ and ‘Issues of Transformation of Leadership’.

The forum was jointly organized by more than 40 organizations working in the human rights sector in Lumbini province. Three hundred people including people-elected representatives of local and and province level, women and youth human rights defenders, human rights activists, journalists and civil society representatives from 12 districts in the province participated in the forum.
