KATHMANDU: President Ram Chandra Paudel has said a massive awareness campaign is essential to end violence against women and girls.

It is worrying that women have been victims of violence and discrimination also because of ill customs.

Chhaupadi, dowry, and tilak are social ills and malpractices that have put women at the receiving end, President Paudel said, underscoring the need to implement law effectively to end such ills and ensure equality.

Giving a message on the occasion of 16-Day Activism and the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women today (Nov 25), President Paudel wished peace, prosperity and happiness to all Nepali sisters.

He reminded Nepal’s constitution has ensured a proportional, inclusive and participatory system, but the existing discrimination against women is a sheer blight.

President Paudel expressed the belief that the Day would inspire the government bodies, social organizations, civil society, rights defenders and media to work for women’s rights and end violence and discrimination against them.

He underscored the need for punishment of those involved in violence against women with effective enforcement of the law.

The President also urged all sides to financially empower women to wipe out discrimination.
