KATHMANDU: The National Women’s Commission is all set to observe this year’s International Campaign on gender-based violence by organizing several programmes.

 

The theme of the Campaign is ” From Peace in the Home to Peace in The World’. The 16-day Campaign will begin on November 25.

 

The Commission on Monday held a discussion programme with the stakeholders to discuss on how to make the Campaign successful.

 

On the occasion, the participants expressed the hope that the Campaign would be of support in eliminating gender-based violence against women.

 

They called for effective enforcement of the rules and regulations against domestic violence on women and approving the bill related to ending violence against women at the work place which is presently under-consideration in the Parliament, among others.

 

The programmes to be launched against gender-based violence should be result-oriented, they stressed.
