The year 2069 B.S witnessed brutal cases of violence against women (VAW). With relentless struggle of women organizations,the situation of VAW is increasingly surfacing out in the public. However, it is still difficult for survivors to get support, justice and a conducive environment to raise their issues. Recent publicized cases of Rajkumari Rana ,Sanu Kanchi who were charged with witchcraft, and the gang rape of 21-year- old woman can be taken as examples among others.

Failure to implement a proper monitoring and implementation system by the Government of Nepal, it has become very difficult for survivors to get support, justice and a conducive environment.
