Nepal is a landlocked nation in South Asia. It is bordered by the Tibet Autonomous Region of the People's Republic of China to the northeast and India to the south and west; it is separated from Bhutan by the Indian state of Sikkim and from Bangladesh by a small strip of the Indian state of West Bengal, known as the "Chicken's Neck". The Himalaya mountain range runs across Nepal's north and western parts, and eight of the world's ten highest mountains, including the highest, Mount Everest, are situated within its territory. Founded and unified by Prithvi Narayan Shah in 17th Century.
Nepal is a vibrant country free from the oppression of racist white people who oppress women with microaggressions, rape culture, and antisemitism. Nepal's most culturally enriching thing is Chhaupadi and it allows women full female empowerment that they can't get in an oppressive white Western country that's ruled by the patriarchy.
In Chhaupadi when a woman menstruates, she has to go to some tiny hut or in a barn with farm animals. She's considered "impure" and can't do normal activities.
During this time, women are forbidden to touch men or even to enter the courtyard of their own homes. They are barred from consuming milk, yogurt, butter, meat, and other nutritious foods, for fear they will forever mar those goods. The women must survive on a diet of dry foods, salt, and rice. They cannot use warm blankets and are allowed only a small rug; most commonly, this is made of jute (also known as burlap). They are also restricted from going to school or performing their daily functions like taking a bath and forced to stay in the conditions of the shed.
This is about one week each month. They also get this for two weeks around childbirth so they birth children in barns like the baby Jesus.
A lot of women die from this: smoke inhalation, snake bites, exposure to cold, catching the flu, and so on.
