Women's Day

It’s Women’s Day. I’m not sure what that means. But I have a better understanding of what Gender Based Violence means now. Until recently it was one of many acronym-y phrases that felt stale to me. It lacked a face.

Then last week I interviewed abused women at a shelter in Kathmandu.

Here is one of their stories, recently published.

Happy Women’s Day from a happy but sober wirl.*

* Sounds better than goman. And it’s still years before I’m ready to call myself a woman.
