Nepal Should Recognize Uterine Prolapse As Human Rights Issue, Amnesty Says

Reuters: Nepal must toughen fight on women’s ‘fallen womb’ crisis — Amnesty
“…Uterine prolapse — a medical condition in which the uterus is displaced from its normal position into the vagina — affects women worldwide but is more common in Nepal, where one in 10 is affected, rights group Amnesty International said on Thursday. Sometimes called ‘fallen womb’, the problem is a direct result of gender discrimination that deprives women of sexual and reproductive rights, Amnesty said in a report…” (Sharma, 2/20).
