How Menstruation Is Shaping Girls' Education in Rural Nepal
Basyal, Samrat
eJEP: eJournal of Education Policy, spec iss 2016
With voices for women's education coming from around the globe, it is a real setback when girls are unable to attend schools during their menstruation or periods, a process they encounter every month. The absence of Nepalese rural female students from schools during their periods does not only have the biological aspect to it but incorporates a wide range of social, cultural, familial, and even the economic factors that impact Nepal hindering its economic growth. This paper examines all those factors relating to girls' menstruation and its impact on their schooling in developing countries. Recommendations for possible ways to carve out solutions for developing countries are noted for this global issue.
