Nepal’s tolerance of child marriage and gender inequality, especially at home seems to reflect that of the larger society. In the highly hierarchical Nepali society, unequal power relations based on gender, caste, class and ethnic origin prevail, and are manifested in the form of oppression and violence against weaker groups.
Though limited in number, there have been efforts to investigate the scope of nature of child marriage and gender discrimination in Nepal. It is believed that, as a result of social taboos, reported cases of child marriage and gender discrimination represent only a very small proportion of the activities taking place.
Ignorance of parents, illiteracy and social taboos mostly persuade the gender discrimination and child marriage. Following the ancestral culture blindly also plays a vital role. These result in the psychological and mental effect, mostly to girls, and also long term consequences in the life. Forum theatre is a well-known participatory method of theatre art to run a dialogue in social and political issues. In order to raise awareness on gender equality and child marriage ICST Nepal together with SOS Nepal decided to come up with a forum theatre play to perform in communities for children to aware about their rights and to the parents to aware about their duties and the equal rights of their children. ICST Nepal’s Theatre team in Coordination with SOS Children's Villages has performed this theatre play in 10 local communities of 6 district.
