Hamro Sahakarya: Our Collective Action
The Storytelling Initiative
UN Women believes in a holistic approach to tackling structural gender inequality, transforming discriminatory social norms and ending harmful practices. This brief highlights about the storytelling initiative, implemented by the UN Women Nepal Country Office with financial support from the Government of Finland. The initiative aims to understand pathways for social norm change and the factors that spur transformative shifts toward gender equality. It builds on Sustainable Development Goal 5 to empower women and girls by increasing their voice, choice and security, and features three main components: research, community-based programming interventions and advocacy that uses storytelling to challenge dominant narratives.
