Women’s Day in Nepal is written as ‘Nari ko Diwas’, which is known as Nari Diwas in the Nepali language. The ‘of’ means ‘ko’, which is not necessary to pronounce when writing a phrase as a noun. Nari means ‘women’ and Diwas means ‘day’ in the Nepali language, while the counterpart ‘Nar’ means ‘male’. The theme of International Women’s Day 2021 is – “Women in Leadership: Achieving an Equal Future in a COVID-19 World”.
A few days ago we received an email from the Embassy in Kathmandu with a link to a discussion between Roland Schäfer (German Ambassador) and Ms Mandira Sharma (lawyer) on transitional justice and human rights in Nepal, which we would like to share with you.
