Nepal's newly promulgated Constitution has denied the right so Indigenous peoples as well as indigenous women. It has done historical injustices towards indigenous women. NIWF's advocacy to ensure indigenous womens rights by protest, rally, submission of Memorandom and hungry strike, pressuring the government in many ways has been not listen by the government.
NIWF had raised following core issues in the constitution making process:
Recognition of indigenous women and rights particularly ensuring their rights in the autonomy with rights of self determination on the basis of ethnicity, language and tradition territories.
Full and effective participation in the every structure of the state including executive, legislatives, judiciary, media civil society organizations etc.
Right to participate with the recognition is fundamental rights of indigenous women that guaranteed by various human rights instruments. These instruments serve as a guiding principle and state has obligation to comply in the constitution making process.
NIWF has formed District Coordination Council (DCC) in 61 districts (Bardiya, Bhoujpur, Dhankuta, Dolpa, Palpa, Ramechhap, Rasuwa, Rupandehi, Morang, Nawalparasi, Dolakha, Tanahu, Nuwakot, Chitwan, Kathmandu, Udayapur, Myagdi, Okhaldhunga, Ilam, Sindhuli, Jhapa, Baglung, Kailali, Rolpa, Gulmi, Parsa, Sunsari, Dhading, Solukhumbu, Banke ,Kaski and Kapilbasthu). The NIWF project has supported to form th structure (NIWF-DCC/networks and VDC coordination council) of NIWF to advocate the local level indigenous women's issues and rights.
