Why These Nepalese Girls Are Speaking Up About Periods | NYT Opinion        NYT        8 March 2019

 

The first time Cheryl Strayed heard the word “chhaupadi,”

she was standing on a rooftop in Surkhet, Nepal,

in November 2017, surrounded by teenage girls.

 

They were students at the Kopila Valley School,

where she and her husband, Brian Lindstrom,

had spent the previous week leading workshops

in writing and filmmaking.

 

Some of the girls had asked to meet after school

to talk about their lives;

they’d barely finished with introductions

when one tearfully told the

that she’d been banished from her home

and made to sleep in a cow she

when she began menstruating.

 

This is the way it was for many girls and women in Nepal,

they learned, as the other girls told us their stories.

Nepal: A Fragile State        TooYoungtoWedPLUSI

 

In 2015,

a 7.8 magnitude earthquake

leveled the Kagati village in Nepal,

where 550 families were left homeless.

 

Forced into marriage

as young teens almost a decade earlier,

Niruta, 23, and Durga, 25,

found their already tenuous livelihood

decimated and the futures of their three children at risk.

 

Though Nepal

has some of the highest rates of child marriage in the world

— 41 percent of girls and 11 percent of boys marry before age 18 —

the earthquake exacerbated the type of desperate poverty

that forces many young brides and grooms into marriage

before they are emotionally ready,

thereby creating a vicious cycle of scarcity and hardship.
