Gender based domestic violence class in Kavresthali community


Published on:

In Nepal, most of the women are illiterate and have less opportunity to empower their social and economic skills. In fact, men occupy most of the opportunities of employment, responsibilities and resources. Most women have unskilled jobs as vendors in small shops, sell fruit and vegetables in markets or are small farmers. As they are housewives uneducated and unemployed they are suffering from gender-based violence. That’s why VIN contributes to educating women on their right to develop new generations with more quality. This leading their independency and consequently improving their quality of life.

VIN staffs have conducted a gender-based domestic class for 13 women in Kavresthali community. The main objective was to educate women on gender-based domestic violence and to explain its effect and consequence in personal life. The contents of the training were the introduction and objectives of training, violence activities, and their effect and consequences. The methodology used were discussion, brainstorming and audio/visual method.

There were taught about the definition of domestic violence and types of domestic violence that they may face directly and indirectly. The causes mostly include male based society and the differences between the opportunities given to male and female. The types of domestic violence affect the overall development in the country. The types of domestic violence include sexual, physical, mental, emotional, economic and social violence. The cycle of domestic violence; pregnancy period- gender based abortion, child period – girls abuse, girls education and her nutrition, adolescent- child marriage, sexual harassment, rape and trafficking. They were explained about the effect and consequence of violence. The main consequences are mental, physical, psychological, social, cultural, economic, etc. And the main results are losing self-esteem and self-respect, less self-improvement, mental diseases, depression, mental and physical pain, development of bad habits, etc. The solution of domestic violence is, developing social justice, development of female supported environment/gender equality and equity society, inform in the police and municipality office.

When we establish social justice and gender equality and equity, we can reduce domestic violence in society. As each and every people have the responsibility to reduce violence VIN has been supporting regularly on this issue by implementing women empowering program for the welfare of women.
