” Nepal Social Forum 2018 ”
– Involvement of Women in Economic Activities
On the 3rd day of Social Forum 2018, AYON performed a puppet show in Balmiki Campus involving 30 participants from the diverse background.
The theme of the show mainly focused on women employment and empowerment and their contribution to the economic status of Nepal. The drama targeted a typical rural community where the misconception of women doing only household chores existed. The drama showed the image of a conservative society.
A quality interaction session was held with the participants where we received their opinion and feedback in the context of their societies.
The drama conveyed a message to the society that women can also contribute to the economic betterment of the nation and they should not be bounded by any norms of the society that discourage women to be independent.
