A 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on 25th of April at 11:56am local time causing large scale damage and many casualties. An additional major earthquake struck on the 12th of May. Over 8 million people are affected in 39 of Nepal’s 75 districts, with over 8,600 deaths and over 14,000 injuries (as of 18th of May). Over 2 million people live in the 11 most critically hit districts in the Central and Western Region, including the Kathmandu Valley districts. In these locations, the 2011 census records 284,144 female headed households, 31,609 women with disabilities, 138,032 women over the age of 65, 609,247 girls aged 14 or under and 630,678 illiterate women and girls. The specific conditions of women and girls in the displaced camps and amongst the wider crisis affected population has yet to be fully assessed. The experience for women and girls in Nepal prior to the earthquake was one characterized by low levels of access to education, healthcare, economic, social and political opportunities. Recorded incidents of gender-based violence were high, with the National Demographic Health Survey (2011) indicating that 22% of women aged 15-49 had experienced physical violence and 12% had experienced sexual violence.
