NGO’s novel plan for ‘harassed husbands’ to rid ‘toxic feminism’

Radha Paudel was 9 years old when she ran away from home wanting to kill herself. Paudel said she was traumatized that her mother and three sisters were banished to a dingy hut whenever they had their periods. Now, more than three decades later, Paudel, an activist for “dignified menstruation,” is cautiously hopeful that a new law will make her work easier.
