In the last three years, three thousands five hundreds rape cases were registered.
An average of three rapes are reported in Nepal every day.
The terror and magnitude of rape seems to tear apart the law, order and image of our society. This has been taking place almost every day in various parts of the country. Minors, girls and women are not safe in their home, school, office and public places.
With strong condemnation of the increasing number of rape, Educational Theater in Nepal (ETIN) organized an Anti Rape campaign to combat rape and the abusing of women, young girls and mino It was organized to pressure the government to take rape incidents seriously and to enact laws containing harsher punishments for rapists, to change the attitudes of victim blaming as well as victims blaming themselves for these heinous acts of violence and to discourage the perpetrators of these crimes. We are very grateful to receive solidarity from Sakti Samuha and Samaj Uthan Mahila Manch in the Anti rape Campaign.
We gathered outside the Primeminister’s official residence in Baluwatar from 12 – 2 PM on the 1st of April 2018 to demand registered letter to Prime minister’s secretariat. Our demands focused on policy reform,  rape laws, proper and fair investigations that free the victims from administrative road blocks to get justice. And our demands also focus on social awareness to eradicate a victim blaming culture that discourages victims to file cases in fear of social stigma, loosing prestige and isolation.
We will continue our fight against rape and always stand up to end all heinous crimes against humanity.
