The Gender Based Violence is one of the plague that afflict Nepali society. This social problem is the major reason that leads to suicide, the principal cause of death among Nepali women in reproductive age. The principal reason why GBV is so common among Nepali women is due to the deep rooted conviction in the society that man is more important than woman.
The Nepal Demographic and Healt Survey (NDHS) done in 2011 has revealed that one in five women of reproductive age (15-49 years old) has reported once in their lifetime an experience of physical violence and more than one in ten experienced sexual violence. However, a majority (75%) did not seek any help and only 7% of women who had experienced sexual violence had reported the assault. Almost one in two adolescents believe that women should tolerate violence in order to keep harmony in the family. The low power of women in Nepali society, their economic dependency on men, traditional power structures, the lack of family and legal support, and their subordinate social position are factors making them particulary vulnerable to GBV.  An equal world where women and men are on the same level will guarantee a better future for humanity, and it will contribute to develop an aware society with same rights and same opportunities for everyone.
As long as the light of love will shine in the heart of a woman ,the world will be safe.
