Title: Conflict, disaster and changing gender roles in Nepal: Women’s Everyday Experiences

Funding: NUFFIC

This thesis is about women and changing gender roles in Nepal. The study traces the gendered effects of the Maoist war and the disaster on women’s everyday lives. It examines how women experience the impact of the Maoist war and the post-conflict era, shifting gender roles, responsibilities, challenges, and new openings. The thesis then asks similar questions about women affected by the earthquake, that happened while the country was still struggling with post-conflict issues
