Tackling discrimination against girls: stories from Nepal

September 2015
Two short videos exploring how gender norms in Nepal have changed over time, and how communications projects are promoting girls' rights.

The Transforming the Lives of Adolescent Girls project explores how discriminatory norms shape and constrain adolescent girls’  opportunities across Ethiopia, Nepal, Uganda and Viet Nam.

In Nepal, we look at how gender norms have changed over time by interviewing daughters, their mothers and grandmothers. Their stories highlight shifts in the relative importance and framing of norms and practices around marriage and education across three generations.

We also see how communications initiatives in Nepal, such as girls’ clubs and radio programmes, are leading to changes in gender norms.
