In Nepali language, Women’s day is written as Nari ko diwas, also shortly called Nari/Naari diwas. Nepal is going to observe International Women’s Day of 2012 on the 8th of March. Both men and women of Nepal will participate to remove anti-sexism.
Tommorrow I also want to respect Nepali girls and women more by appreciating their works and showing love towards them. I even want to wish better for women’s economic, political and social achievements.
I have heard from somewhere that the UN theme for 2012 International Women’ s Day is to empower women plus ending hunger and poverty.
The countries like Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cuba, Georgia, Guinea-Bissau, Eritrea, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, and Zambia provides official holiday for both males and females. But in the countries like China, Macedonia, and Madagascar including our country Nepal, the government allows the official holiday to women (girls) only.
In some countries, such as Cameroon, Croatia, Romania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Serbia and Bulgaria, women’s day is not a public holiday but they widely observed nonetheless.
I am observing myself that many banks of Nepal have come with many schemes for women of Nepal. Besides this females would be given priority on women’s day in the educational sector to medical sector.
In Nepal, the way of treating females has been changed. Both married and unmarried girls got power to use and speak for their own rights in the sense that they are more educated than before. I want to wish you all my blog readers a very happy International Women’s Day 2012.
