Elections in Nepal, portraits of female voters

On April 10th 2008, 17 millions of Nepalese men and women (on a total of 28 millions inhabitants) where invited to vote for the 601 members of the constituent assembly. On the agenda of their first session will feature the transition into a Republic. The result of a two years peace process, that followed ten years of civil war opposing the maoist rebels to the army and royal police, these elections confirmed the victory of the nepalese maoist party, that now holds 207 seats in the assembly.
In the continuity of his questioning of this ten years of transition, particularly on the position of the Nepalese woman in this "New Nepal", Frédéric Lecloux has, during this historical week, met some of them and asked them about their hopes on the future of their country.
