Gender Equity Training in Nepal: 18 women and 7 men from local civic societies attended a Gender Equity Training in June 2010. In this image, a Tharu woman explains the daily tasks of women from sunrise to sunset. The men similarly explained how they spend their day. All participants learned that the division of labor is unequal, with women performing the onus of work. Backward Society Education, a local human rights NGO that advocates for the rehabilitation of former bonded laborers in southwest Nepal, coordinated the two-day training in Tulsipur, Nepal.
