Kathmandu: On International Women’s Day 2023, ten women with disabilities who have overcome significant obstacles to lead a dignified life are being featured in a photo exhibition at Jawalakhel Staff College in Lalitpur. 

Organized by a consortium of international non-governmental organizations along with national partner organizations, the event is dedicated to working with people with disabilities and recognizing their contribution to the society. The event will take place between 2-4pm on Wednesday, according to the organizers. 

The photo exhibition aims at showcasing the remarkable achievements of women with disabilities who have triumphed over multiple forms of discrimination including discrimination faced as a woman, a person with a disability, a person living in poverty, and a person from an indigenous or marginalized community.
