At a programme organized by the Women’s Forum for Women in the capital city on Friday, advocate Tikaram Bhattarai said the law the government brought recently against workplace violence could not address the problems of women working in the informal and recreation sectors.

Similarly, Bal Kumari Ale of the Bishwas Nepal said the government needs to give recognition to the recreation sector.

General Secretary of Hotel Restaurant Federation, Dipak Sapkota, said different trainings were being provided to the rights of the women working in the hotel and restaurants.

Forum’s Chairperson Srijana Pun said her organization was bringing together the women working in the recreation sector and making them aware on their rights. (RSS)
