DEC 12 - Nearly 50 percent of all migrants are women. While previously women often migrated as “dependents”, they are now increasingly migrating as individuals.

Violence against Women is disturbingly, a growing trend in Nepal. The scope and extent of violence against women are reflections of the degree and persistence of discrimination that women have been continuously facing.
