Press Release :
Widespread and systemic gender discrimination in Nepal has led to hundreds of thousands of women suffering from a reproductive health condition that leaves them in great pain, unable to carry out daily tasks and often ostracized from their families and communities, Amnesty International said in a new report launched on 20 Feb 2014.
Uterine prolapse – a debilitating condition where the uterus descends from its normal position into the vagina - is rooted in discrimination that has severely limited the ability of women and girls to make decisions about their sexual and reproductive lives. Harsh working environments, early marriages and having too many children all contribute to the condition.

Appeal for Action
पाठेघर खस्ने समस्या मानवअधिकारको सवाल हो भनी नेपाल सरकारका तर्फबाट सार्वजनिक रुपमा स्वीकार गरियोस् ।
नेपालमा छ लाख भन्दा बढी महिलाहरू पाठेघर (आङ्ग) खस्ने समस्याबाट ग्रसित छन् । यस्तो दुःखदायी र दर्दनाक अवस्थाका कारण प्रत्येक दिन महिलाहरूले अनावश्यक बोझ र समस्या भोग्नु परिरहेको छ । लैङ्गिक विभेद नै नेपाली महिला र युवतीहरूमा बढ्दो पाठेघर खस्ने समस्याको विद्यमान कारण र परिणाम दुवै हुन् ।
अरु देशको तुलनामा नेपालमा यौवन अवस्थामा नै महिलाहरूमा यस्तो अवस्था देखा पर्ने गरेको छ । यसरी कम उमेरमै यो समस्या हुनुको प्रमुख कारण उनीहरुमाथि निरन्तर तवरले हुने लैङ्गिक विभेद नै हो । पाठेघर खस्ने समस्याको प्रमुख कारणको रुपमा रहेको लैङ्गिक विभेद मानव अधिकारको सवाल हो ।
