Nepalis protest 'ridiculous' proposed ban on women travelling abroad

Sarah Best

24th February 2021

The Nepalese government has proposed a law that would ban women from travelling abroad without permission from their families and local government officials.

The government has suggested that the law would reduce people trafficking, and would only target 'vulnerable' women who may seek work outside of Nepal. However, critics have said that the law is regressive and does not empower women.

The article could be used for a discussion about gender and women's rights around the world within the Global Development unit.
