Patriarchal structures and traditional gender roles have created indefinite barriers to the women in Nepal. To describe the reality that women should be able to occupy half of all public sectors, the resemblance of 'half the sky' is applied. However, the presence of women is extremely narrow in the public sphere. There are few women to overcome these challenges based on structure, religion-culture-tradition and political barriers. Here, the story of struggle and success of these women who broke through the confines of the structure and came out, their battle to break down the walls of patriarchal structures and what they faced in the process, a series of distinctions and, through their enviable success, to motivate other women by revealing the story of successful women are presented in one of the inspirational program- “Parkhal Bahira”.
