Radha Paudel, MDM 2010 and founder and president of Action Works Nepal (AWON), writes about the horrific traditional practices and beliefs about menstruation in Nepal that restrict women’s freedom of movement, harm their body and hamper their development. She ends her article with a fervent hope:
“All this needs to change and I am hoping that women and girls, as they start to go to school and educate themselves, will abandon such unscientific and irrational practices and try to do best to live with dignity as human beings, equal to men."
