Need to be changed mindset and the implementation of the law of violence against women

In a patriarchal Nepali society, women and men are in the same chariot, no matter how much they talk about two wheels and equality, but in practice, women are becoming uncomfortable in the vicious cycle of violence, which is the sad side.

The society developed from the idea that women are physically, mentally, and psychologically weak is still discriminatory in itself. We have the bitter reality that women have to face violence in every aspect of society.

According to various studies, every day in the world, one woman experiences some form of violence in her lifetime. Violence is experienced by relatives, trusted people, spouses, and lovers.

Violence against women is a product of gender inequality. Although it is not addressed by the law, violence against women and gender inequality still exists in the developed world in one form or another.

Physical and social discrimination can be seen by all. There is also a legal remedy. Political discrimination is invisible.

Nepali society is still riddled with stereotypes and superstitions. It is a well-known fact that there is no liberal attitude towards women. Where women are respected, God is pleased. This statement has linked the existence of women with divine existence.

Nepali society has already encouraged men and kept women where they are. Violence against women is also found in the political arena where women’s rights and women’s equality are being raised. Women who are in the political arena to change society and the country by saying that men and women are equal and should be equal also suffer mentally.

Patriarchal thinking, which is at the root of our society, has taken root in the political arena as well. Violence in the social sphere starts from the discussion of politically active women and their home, family, society and political parties also seem to discriminate. The busyness of political and organizational work is an example of many women leaders being unmarried.

Although women who are active in politics spend their energetic time in the party organization, they are forced to live a lonely life in the ups and downs of life. But the leaders of the political parties have not given support and self-reliance.

There are women leaders in political parties who have played important roles for a long time when that opportunity is created for women in the nation.

Parliament was dissolved. At that time, she conducted the street parliament by playing the role of the speaker from the street and also shouted for the end of the autocratic monarchy.

Nepal’s constitution guarantees 33 percent representation in every state body. But 33 percent of women are not present in the working committees of almost all the parties. There are only 12.5 percent women ministers in the central government. The number of ministers in all the seven state cabinets is low.

The Constitution of Nepal has made provision for proportional, inclusive, and representative representation of women in everybody of the state. But women have not been represented accordingly.

The constitution provides for a woman among the President, Vice-President, Speaker, and Deputy Speaker, but why is it not written as a woman among the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister? Violence against women is also thought to be limited to ceremonial and not to executive positions.

Article 38 (3) of the Constitution of Nepal guarantees the right of women not to be subjected to any form of physical, mental, sexual, psychological, or other forms of violence or exploitation.

Despite repeated political changes in Nepal increasing women’s participation and awareness, the implementation of the rights given by the constitution at the decision-making level still seems to below. For this, it is necessary for the leaders of political parties to change their women-friendly policy, their thinking, and their style.

Similarly, the anti-violence provisions in the constitution and law should be implemented to bring justice to the victims and punish the perpetrators.

By embracing the idea that both sons and daughters are equal in society, it is necessary to raise public awareness against violence against women.

Today’s need is to find and eradicate unrecognized intangible violence. Therefore, change in the mentality of all and implementation of the law is needed today to end violence against women.
