// IWD 2015 //
Did you watch it yet?
The highly controversial documentary,
that focuses on the
rape case of
who was brutally
beaten and raped
Now banned in India,
has made its way
World Wide Web
Watch it here:
International Women's Day today
we thought we should share the link
to this important story as we
believe that education for everyone is
the key to a greater understanding
of differences within cultures
and social machinery.
In Nepal, unfortunately we also experience
harassment plenty of times.
This is something that hardly ever
to us when in Norway,
but in meeting with other people
traditions, culture, mindset.
As said in this documentary,
Jyotis parents are quite traditional,
but they had modern thoughts.
That's why they choose
to sell their land and
do everything they could
to get Jyoti an education
They were often questioned by
other people why they did this as Jyoti
was clearly a girl and therefor
it was kind of a waste,
bur for Jyotis parents she was
their child and as loved if she would be as boy.
Seems that too many people in this
world means that being modern/ living a modern life
is synonymous with going
against religion and/or traditions
and do not realize that is might be possible
Every time I get my ass or my crouch
( yes, that happens too and it is absolutely horrible!!!)
grabbed on the street or in a bar,
I try to keep calm
and then I ask the
( Undereducated? Supressed? Sexually frustrated?)
guy if he would like that to happen to his mother or his sister???
The answer is mostly no and they get to understand
what they are doing with something
they can relate too as often in Nepal
the men are very protective
of ( their) women.
But there are positives too
and just last
year it was the first time we
working as waitress in cafes
& bars so changes
are happening here too!
