February 14, 2022
Prakash Chandra Kewat, a gender champion of UMN’s Gender Equality Project, once thought that women were meant to stay at home and cover all the household work.

Rima Kumari Harijan, 25, is from a Madhesi community and lives with her joint family in Langadipakad village of Nawalparasi District. In the Madhesi culture, the patriarchal system is strongly practised. Men hold more power and deprive women of many things. The daughters-in-law have to stay limited inside their homes and are not allowed to go outside alone without a family member.
