Woman, 2 sons die in Nepal town in suspected menstrual exile

A woman and her two sons died in Nepal because of a tradition in which women are exiled from their homes and forced to live in huts during menstruation.

Many menstruating women are still forced to leave their homes and take shelter in unhygienic or insecure huts or cow sheds until their cycle ends. The custom — called “Chhaupadi” — continues in many parts of the majority Hindu Himalayan country, especially in the western hills.
