Day 7- Gender and Work:
Our session on Gender and Work made it clear how traditional Nepali culture has defined work on the basis of gender. From our discussion it was noted that even though women worked extremely hard they have limited decision making power. While looking closely at gender and work, all the girls agreed that in today’s world most of work that men do can be done by women and vice versa. The work undertaken by women Gender in Nepal is changing with time, need and circumstances.
Sports undertaken today included football and badminton.
Day 8- People and Things:
