Check this out: Death by Suicide Among Women is Increasing in Nepal and India

Frighteningly, suicide among women aged 15 – 49 is the leading killer of this age group in India and Nepal.

My heart goes out to these women who feel so completely low and depressed that they attempt to end their own life. Their restrictive culture is the cause, and there is no remedy nor help offered by doctors nor the government.

Thankfully Maggie Doyne is raising awareness about this issue and has even started the Kopila Valley Women’s Center “to provide a safe and supportive environment for women to come together and learn skills to promote economic independence and self-sufficiency.”
