Violence Against Women in Nepal -- An Overview

Violence Against Women in Nepal -- An Overview

Historically, violence against women and girls (VAW&G) has been in existence and a widespread in Nepali society but still unreported problem in Nepal. Data on the issue is hard to come by as there are very few studies done on the subject. Violence against women (VAW) has started being openly discussed and addressed only in the last decade. The lens of looking at women has changed significantly that shifted from being child bearers and providers of health care in the 60\'\'s and 70\'\'s to a slow realization of their critical productive role in rural economy in the 80\'\'s, and to the recognition of women as citizens in need of equal legal and political rights in the 90\'\'s. Without comprehensive, carefully documented research on violence against women, it is impossible to know whether women are experiencing more violence in some countries than in others, or whether they are reporting it more often. In the absence of proper research, it is difficult to compare and assess the scope of violence as well as the effectiveness of programmes to end it. With research, advocates can better understand obstacles and develop appropriate methods for combating them. Research can motivate government and civil society to take action once the extent of a problem is proven.
