Social awareness needed to control GBV

2022 Dec 10, 7:26, Kathmandu

Minister for Women, Children and Senior Citizen, Uma Regmi, has argued that Nepali society would not free from violence against women unless the mentality of individual, family and community is changed. Social awareness is essential to wipe out the gender based violence (GBV) prevalent in the society.

Minister Regmi made such observation during a programme organized as part of the 16-day activism against GBV (Nov 25-Dec 10) here Friday.

On the occasion, Resident Representative of UNICEF Nepal, Elke Wisch, viewed women's efforts alone would not be sufficient to end violence against women. All sectors in society should work in unison to end such violence.

Chairperson of 'Hami Dajubhai', Sanjog Thakuri, seconded Elke that one sided efforts of women were not enough to end violence against them. Active role of male and children is equally essential to this regard, he added.
