What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?
Since childhood, I have been observing something strange whenever our family performs certain religious rituals. Senior members from the neighbors are invited for discussion regarding how to conduct the ritual. Decisions are always made by male members while the females must listen to what the men have to say. These moments make me more certain about the importance of equality, of our voices being heard, and of respecting human dignity and worth.
Please share your biggest wins as an advocate for gender equality.
Biswas Nepal, an NGO, advocates against injustice, exploitation, and abuse faced by workers of the entertainment sector organized a rally program on International Women's Day. From my level, I made numerous pamphlets and slogans related to women and also actively participated in the rally.
Outside of your gender equality advocacy work, what do you enjoy doing?
Dancing, sleeping, creating and editing videos, watching movies and reflecting on them, shopping, and roaming around.
