Australian Ambassador to Nepal Glenn White has said  that reconstruction is not only about nuts and bolts of building houses but an opportunity to re-calibrate a society which has gender equity and actively encourages women to contribute to the decisions affecting their lives.

Speaking at a workshop on “Building Back Better and Safer for Gender Equality” organized by the Australian Embassy, in partnership with the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, (UN Women) and Sancharika Samuha Nepal in the capital on Friday, Ambassador White said women in urban and rural communities of Nepal have already shown courage and inspiration in rebuilding their communities futures following the tragic events of 2015, and their contribution to society needs to be better recognised.
