DOTI, Dec 21: The drive to demolish Chhaugoth – an outdoor shed where women or girls are kept during menstruation - has resumed to put an end to the deep-rooted social taboo in the Sudurpaschim Province.
DAILEKH, Jan 8: The District Administration Office and District Police Office have demolished 93 chhaugoths at different local levels of the western part of the Dailekh district. Chhaugoth is a separate poorly ventilated hut where menstruating women are made to stay in for at least the first five to seven days.
KATHMANDU, Dec 29: It is going to be interesting to watch how the battle against Chhaupadi will unfold in the days to come because the government has decided to take the tough battle to the end this time. Apart from the arrest of a relative of a woman who died at a Chhaugoth (menstruation shed) two weeks ago, the government has announced that those who continue to practice it will be behind bars and will also be deprived of social security allowances and services.
