Among married women, one-third had experienced emotional, physical, or sexual violence
from their spouses. Another study has reported that nearly half of Nepalese women experienced violence at some point in their lives, and three-quarters of the perpetrators were the intimate partners, including husbands. The study also found that more than 15% of the women had experienced sexual violence from their intimate partners, predominantly being forced to have sex against their will.Likewise, the Sexual Violence Assessment in Seven Districts of Nepal study 7 drew attention to adolescent girls: 1 in 10 (9.8%) girls 15–19 years of age reportedly experienced sexual violence.

A 2008 study of sexual abuse among Kathmandu street children showed that more than
one-fifth, almost all boys, had been abused through oral sex or penetration.According to State of the Rights of the Child in Nepal 2002, an annual report published by the Child Workers in Nepal Concerned Centre (CWIN), out of the 223 recorded cases of rape among women and children, 174 (78%) occurred in girls below 16 years of age. These CWIN findings suggest that child sexual abuse is a serious problem in Nepali society, meriting further study and action.
