  Menstruation practices in urban households  
  BY SEWA BHATTARAI  
 
Tussles between older and younger generations turn urban homes into constant battlefields.

Chhaupadi, where menstruating women are made to live in sheds away from their homes, is a much-derided tradition in Western Nepal. But most Hindu families, even urban ones, continue to follow some form of menstrual segregation. Though most of these traditions are not as extreme as Chhaupadi, they discomfit young women to a large degree.

Mina Paudel, 66, was raised in a tradition where a girl was kept inside a closed room for 11 days during her first period, and not even allowed to see the sun. She ate separately from the family, washed her own dishes, slept on the ground, and took care to avoid being seen by elders when they were eating because even the sight of a menstruating woman was inauspicious. She raised her two daughters in a similar culture, though not as extreme as her own times.
