VAW is a global problem in terms of women empowerment that is linked as a basic hindrance for Gender Equality. VAW exist in various forms where its severity is not just mapped with visible indicators but is encountered in various forms of psychological, sexual, emotional, and verbal form. It is estimated that one in every three girl suffers VAW in her life time. The major reasons for VAW are patriarchal mindset, illiteracy, poverty, lack of awareness, women subordination to men etc. In whichever form or where it is, VAW has been an issue to be talked and discussed which needs a more proactive solution of self-awareness and self-reliance. It’s social problem that is culturally deep rooted in our society that directly affects women empowerment and leadership.

Whether it’s a developed country, developing country or a least developed, VAW exist in various forms where its severity is not just mapped with visible indicators but is encountered in various forms of psychological, sexual, emotional, and verbal form. It is estimated that one in every three girl suffers VAW in her life time. The major reasons for VAW are patriarchal mindset, illiteracy, poverty, lack of awareness, women subordination to men etc. In whichever form or where it is, VAW has been an issue to be talked and discussed which needs a more proactive solution of self- awareness and self-reliance. It’s social problem that is culturally deep rooted in our society that directly affects women empowerment and leadership. Every year the 16 days orange the world is celebrated from 25th November, the International Day for Elimination of all forms of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day marking the activism against Gender-Based Violence to end violence against women and girls around the world. The international campaign originated from the first Women's Global Leadership Institute coordinated by the Center for Women's Global Leadership in 1991. The year 2015 marks the 20-year anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the most progressive road map to gender equality. World leaders met in March at the United Nations 59th Commission on the Status of Women and in September at the 70th General Assembly to take stock of the progress made and commit to take action to close the gaps that are holding women and girls back. This year a new Sustainable Development agenda, which for the first time includes specific targets and indicators on ending violence against women, also replaced the Millennium Development Goals. Research Objectives: The basic objective of this research is to segregate the common knowledge and practice of VAW among the normal public. Though there are various campaigns that are running around but there has been very less work done in terms of understanding the knowledge and acceptability of VAW and its cognitive process. This research deals with the basic objective of understanding the capacity of normal public in terms of their knowledge and action against VAW. The objective can be listed in following given points:  Finding the basic knowledge about VAW  Effectiveness of information flow  Local action mechanism and repercussions  Local assumption and practices regarding VAW  Problems and issues of VAW  General trend in understanding the behavior against VAW  Social indicators for VAW  New perspective and ideologies  Social media trend  Youth concepts and practices

  10. 10. 10 | P a g e Report on Survey of 16 Days Orange week VAW : Shreedeep Rayamajhi / Sajina Karki Survey Conclusions: VAW has been one of the very core issues in terms of women independence. No matter how developed or how civilized our societies are but with the statistics showing 1 out of every 3 woman or a girl facing VAW shows the intensity and lack of action mechanism against the issue. The survey reflect the prospect of VAW mostly occurring at teenage specially in and around their own proximity where there seems to be awareness about the definition but regarding action and laws there seems to be a gap of understanding. Many of the participants have focused and highlighted the prospect of use of technology, right of education, property rights, women independence, strict government rules and regulation where on the other hand there were participants who mostly focused on the role of mother and specific awareness campaigns for men to stand up against VAW. Many ideas and thought of schools have been poured in but an interesting aspect of the survey was the ideology of women being against various aspect of the socio cultural practice. Likewise, it also highlights the contemporary practice of male dominated society which needs to settle down with effective women position strategy and leadership opportunities. The survey also highlights the prime cause of VAW to be limited ideologies of men seeing women within the household and managing homes. Similarly, there were other voices of women highlighting the right knowledge of sex education in terms of gender equality as well. The survey hugely focused more towards the trend of women evolution in terms of breaking the barriers of orthodox culture and dowry system. The survey results clearly shows the dynamic of various aspect of socio cultural indicators that are more enthusiastic and very strong in terms of identifying the problems. The limited resources and awareness programs that are running can be an eye opener but for solution more aggressive and action oriented campaigns needs to be designed and focused. It needs a more dynamic approach in terms of communication and media strategy that needs to further researched and explored. The other side of the VAW is people are more culturally traumatized about the issues that most of them fail to report the cases where a great need of awareness is needed. A more radical approach of the survey is the concern of online VAW cases that are more vulnerable and proactive in terms of the damage where there are limited laws and regulations. Currently, it is estimated that from Nepal there are more than 3.4 million internet users who are online every day in search of information or data. If only 1 % of the internet user encounter online VAW that’s a great number in-terms of thousands. A relative concerns has to be raised in terms of online VAW and designing effective policy and mechanism. A wide range of participation was seen from various Sectors from technical field to leaders to lawyers to IT professional to doctors to students to homemakers with varying a wide sense of prospect and issues of action.
