In a country where women are found greatly confined to household and economically dependent on their male counterparts, Ambika Khadka, a 35-year-old single woman from Melamchi has a different story to tell.
“Those who used to call me out for being a single woman, now seek advice about pesticides and solutions for their problems in their vegetables and plants. I can see a lot of changes in people’s perceptions towards women and their capabilities. I am happy for not only myself but for those women to whom I was able to support and help. I hope other women in other places in our country will be able to do what I am doing for my family and myself,” says Ambika.
Let’s celebrate women's achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality. Happy International Women’s Day!
