Democracy, Gender Equality and Women’s Literacy: Experience from Nepal
PDF File Size: 420 KB | Download   
Nepal has in its history witnessed patriarchy, different forms of monarchy, and oligarchy. The culture thus shaped and nurtured hierarchical values and a gender based social construct. In 1951 the country introduced a parliamentary form of a democratic system with the removal of the 104-year-old Rana oligarchy. This system continued for a decade, but it contradicted with the culturally shaped and nurtured hierarchical and gender based social arrangement. Consequently, Nepal suffered from political instability, frequent change in government, and conflict between the proculturist and pro transformative forces.
