Scaling the summit for women's rights

For many women, finding their voice and identity in South Asia is like climbing Mt. Everest. It’s not an easy task because of deeply embedded patriarchal values and gender norms. Violence against women, particularly domestic violence, is the biggest deterrent to women’s advancement and development.

However, with a vibrant women’s movement and civil society activism, scaling this mountainous hurdle can be possible. Equality advocate Bandana Rana explores how a shared collective vision of inclusive development is required to make gender equality a reality.

This means breaking the culture of silence, harnessing the potential of the media and enhancing critical and collaborative partnership for transforming the roadmap to inclusive development. Her lecture will highlight experiences of linking efforts from local to global and global to local for scaling the hurdles of rising inequalities.

Hosted by Aide à l’Enfance de l’Inde et du Népal (AEIN) and the University of Luxembourg. The Kapuscinski Development Lectures is an initiative funded by the European Commission.
