WOREC is a Human Rights Organization, persistently working for the protection and promotion of Human Right in Nepal since its establishment in 1991. WOREC is continuously advocating for peace and social justice through promotion of human rights, democracy and elimination of all kinds of violence, particularly, violence against women. WOREC has been working as a pool between people in the community to the policy making level and creating space to raise the voices of unheard and marginalized groups to be heard.
The year 2069 B.S witnessed brutal cases of violence against women (VAW). With relentless struggle of women organizations,the situation of VAW is increasingly surfacing out in the public. However, it is still difficult for survivors to get support, justice and a conducive environment to raise their issues. Recent publicized cases of Rajkumari Rana ,Sanu Kanchi who were charged with witchcraft, and the gang rape of 21-year- old woman can be taken as examples among others. These issues have to be immediately addressed.
"Violence Against Women needs speedy justice and political prioritization"
Violence against women is a pervasive problem in Nepal. However access to justice is becoming merely a dream inspite of the commitment from the State together with support both internationally and nationally. Failure to implement a proper monitoring and implementation system by the Government of Nepal, it has become very difficult for survivors to get support, justice and a conducive environment.
Inspite of Nationwide protest against VAW, it escalates! The difficulty to register FIR against vaw continues. For those who dare to bring the cases of VAW against them and luckily gets heard by police by registering the case, getting justice is still a rare dream. As the focus of existing criminal justice system is on perpetrators humiliation of survivors continues at every step. Long justice system forces women to live with stigmatization till the case comes to end.
