Despite the efforts of the Nepalese government to reduce gender-based violence, violence against women and girls remains one of Nepal’s main problems. Widely under-estimated and socially accepted, violence against women remains high and takes a variety of forms: physical, sexual, psychological and/or economic.

In Nepal, Chepang women belong to one of the most disadvantaged ethnic groups and are one of the most marginalized populations. They are strongly influenced by the socio-cultural and patriarchal society which exposes them to extreme forms of violence such as forced or early marriages, male dominance, superstition, social taboos, etc.
