Priority Areas for Addressing Sexual and Gender Based Violence in Nepal
PDF File Size: 217 KB | Download   
Impact of the 11 year insurgency in Nepal has affected thousands of people who have been victims of trauma, forced displacement and violence. Due to the structural inequalities of Nepalese society, the effect on women and girls and on people from excluded communities has been more severe. The UN Technical Mission of December 2006 reports that many women and girls were made more vulnerable and subjected to displacement and sexual exploitation. Experience indicates that women themselves, when deprived of their homes, separated from their families and without community structures to protect them, face increased violence and are often forced into trading sex for material goods or protection, or for basic survival. In many cases they are held responsible for the acts of sexual and gender-based violence they encounter.

Sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) occurs at every stage of a conflict: rape has been increasingly used as a weapon of war; instability and loss of men’s status often leads to increased domestic violence. Civilian women and children are often target-for-abuse and are the most vulnerable to exploitation, violence, and abduction simply because of their gender, age and status in society.1 This indicates that in the ongoing peace building processes in Nepal, specific focus on the effects of SGBV need to be understood and addressed.
