Background: National Women Commission has been established on the 7th of March 2002, on the eve of 92nd International Women Day. In the history of Commission, first few years remained the years of dilemma because of the political instability and unclear government policies. However, it has been on the clear avenue after having the provision in interim constitution.
The commission, so far, has been working based on its annual planning and there was a felt need of five year strategic planning for the visible result of the initiatives. Thus in order to fulfill the need and for the effective implementation of National Commission Act 2063 and its Regulation 2065, the Commission has developed and adopted the strategic planning in 2009. The following paragraphs give the detail of the planning.In the planning process, the following core values/guiding principles of National Commission were observed.
As a human being male and female are equal despite their biological differences. They (male and female) deserve equal status, rights and responsibilities not only in formal but also in substance without any discrimination. National Women Commission works for the promotion, protection and implementation of human rights in order to achieve the objective of gender equality.
Social Equity/ Inclusiveness
Social Equity is a strategy and the quality of being fair and right to address social and structural imbalances. Social inclusiveness is a means in the process of achieving social and gender equality. As eliminating social, cultural and gender based discrimination is one of the major objectives of the National women’s Commission, it will therefore strives to promote the culture of equal opportunity and participation with social equity and inclusion in all of its activities. It also advocate for the affirmative actions or positive discrimination where ever needed to bridge the gap by all the actors and institutions of the state.
