  • The state, sexual violence, and women’s activism in Nepal
  • Seira Tamang
  • While post-2006 Nepal has seen a large increase in reports of sexual violence and widespread impunity for perpetrators, it is clear that the pre-existing grid of inequalities and power relations have enabled everyday impunity to become entrenched. Historical exclusion by the state, a largely inaccessible criminal justice system, and a legal system enforced by high-caste, Hindu, male elites are key to this entrenchment.
