Overview

Women in Nepal experience discrimination in all areas of their lives. The goal of Oxfam’s Raising Her Voice programme is to ensure that public policy making reflects the interests of poor and marginalized women in the country, especially by increasing their participation and influence in community decision-making bodies that have a particular impact on their lives. This case study – one of a series of Programme Insights on Local Governance and Community Action – shows the remarkable success of the programme in Nepal in building women’s confidence, knowledge, and skills, so that they could bring about changes that have had a practical impact on the lives of all the people, and especially the women, in their communities.
