Beijing plus 20 – Voices from Cambodia (Bimala Jnawali)
Ms. Bimala Jnawali has been working for policy change on a local, national and international level for years. She is the president of the Alliance Against Trafficking in Women and Children in Nepal (AATWIN), a pioneer network that campaigns to end human trafficking problems. At the same time Bimala is the chairperson of Children and Women in Social Services & Human Rights (CWISH), a human right organization striving to protect rights of the children, youth and women. For Bimala, one major problem in Nepal is the denial of equal citizenship rights for women, a fundamental structural cause for human trafficking.
