Kashag Outlines Policies on Women Empowerment
Tibet.net[Wednesday, October 15, 2008 17:28]
Dharamshala: The Kashag (Cabinet) of the Central Tibetan Administration on Tuesday outlined an eight-point policy to empower Tibetan women's equal participation in the successful establishment of non-violent and democratic Tibetan community as envisioned by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

The Kashag underscored the need to strengthen women's role in the administrative and politics of the democratic Tibetan community during this year’s democracy day celebration.

Although no gender discrimination of any kind have taken place in the history of Tibet, the Kashag said the need to empower Tibetan women has become clearly pertinent since women lag behind their male counterparts in taking part in administration and politics in the exile community.

The policy will focus on providing necessary assistance and facilities to the Tibetan nuns to undertake and make progress in the field of higher studies in religious studies. The Kashag will continue the on-going efforts on reviving the Bhikshuni ordination of Tibetan nuns.

Under its new policy, the Kashag will study the number of Tibetan women’s participation in various regional administrative institutions such as local Tibetan assemblies, board of directors of co-operative societies and Rawang Denpai Legul Tsokchung and group leaders in the Tibetan settlements based in India, Nepal and Bhutan. Accordingly, efforts will be made in encouraging and increasing the number of their participation.

It emphasizes that the Tibetan settlements should make efforts in having women as representatives and welfare officers.

To provide equal opportunities for school graduates in selecting their courses for further studies and for those who are opting for jobs, the Central Tibetan Administration will take note of career counseling in the respective schools.

It will make efforts to implement the provision enshrined in the Basic Education Policy for Tibetans in Exile that “priority shall be given to female candidates for the posts of pre-primary teacher and assistant.”

The new policy will lay special consideration on the health of mother and child in order to develop a future posterity with good morals and facilitate a steady growth on population. Moreover, special workshops and necessary facilities will be given to those women who have formed their new families to help them become good mothers.

The policy emphasizes that girls’ team in sports should be developed at same level as that of boys in schools.

It also underlines the need to conduct workshops for the general public to explain the objectives of the policy to empower women.
