Males of Nepal

I was born in a eastern part of Nepal,which is a bit developed than far western part of Nepal,where many males are educated but in a sence of holding certificate.They know women and men have equal rights and they both are the two side of coin,without one another cant do anything but they dont want their wife,daughter to gives their right.They really dont want their wife,daughters to be independent.They give lecture about womens right,but when the times come to give their support they ran away.I think this is not only the problem of my society or my country,it may be also the problems of yours country.
Though I had face this problem many times in my society,I was lucky enough to have supportive father in my home,who support my mom n me too.With his help,I got chance to have have higher education and be a part of Asian University For Women to learn something for women.Though many males have a thought of discriminating women but some are there who really work for women rights and freedom and I want to thanks to all the male who really support women.

It is a blessing that your

It is a blessing that your dad valued you and it is sad that this is not a common story among women of Nepal. I hope you and other women have the courage and strength to stand up and demand you and every women receives equality in Nepal. Furthermore, teach women that they should be defined by being independent which can be best achieved through education.
