In the context of the sixty-eighth session of the Commission on the Status of Women, the Permanent Mission of Nepal to the UN in New York alongside UN Woman, United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Global Forum of Communities discriminated on Work and Descent (GFoD) will hold a side event focusing on descent-based communities and the unique discriminatory practices they are experiencing based on the idea of “purity and pollution” often tied to ancestral or present occupations.

The event will address the intersectionality of discrimination, marginalization and poverty, and highlight experiences and program interventions which foster liberation and the eradication of the myth of untouchability and social exclusion. 

For more details, please refer to the Concept note.
