Policy And Advocacy
Despite recent improvements in the law, Nepal’s legal system continues to discriminate against women, both in legal code and through enforcement practices. SASANE is working diligently to advocate for change within the legal system and to provide legal support to victims of trafficking and sexual exploitation.
SASANE surveyed 100 elected members of Constituent Assembly in order to prepare recommendations to Constituent Assembly on practices of violence against women in members’ constituencies.
In collaboration with Alliance Against Trafficking of Women In Nepal (AATWIN), SASANE presented a memorandum to chairpersons of the Constituent Assembly and Constitutional Committee calling for the constitution to ban sexual slavery.
SASANE has achieved groundbreaking success in Supreme Count cases involving Nepal’s internal sex industry, where SASANE advocate Shyam Pokharel provided legal support to more than 54 women.
