Nepal tightens laws against dowry, menstrual exile

Nepal’s Parliament has passed a Bill toward making women safer in the country. The bill strengthens laws against acid attacks along with the ancient Hindu customs of demanding dowry payments for marriage and exiling women who are menstruating.
The new law will be effective from August 2018. The violators who force women into exile will face punishments of up to three months in jail or a fine of 3,000 Nepalese rupees, or about ₹1,875.
Under the practice called as Chhaupadi, many menstruating women are still forced to leave their homes. They had to take shelter in insecure huts or cow sheds until their cycle ends. The government had outlawed the practice a decade ago. But without any assigned penalties, the custom continued in many parts of the country, especially in the western hills.
