Are chaddies doing anything to end these practices?

Alone and in pain, Tulasi Shahi encountered a poisonous snake.

The Nepali woman had been banished to her uncle's cowshed as per the “chaupadi” tradition, a centuries-old practice common among Hindus in the western regions of Nepal, though it was outlawed in 2005. Some communities there consider women “impure” while they are menstruating. These women are prohibited from daily activities and left isolated in sheds with straw floors for the duration of their periods.

Shahi was bitten on the head and leg while banished, the mayor of the local district, Surya Bahadur Shahi, told CNN. It was unclear whether he was related to the woman.

Her family members tried to treat her with home remedies before taking Tulasi Shahi to a clinic near Dailekh, which did not have antivenin. Recent monsoon rains have flooded the area, making a trek to a distant hospital difficult.

She died seven hours later, CNN reported.
Shahi, whose age has been reported as 19 by CNN and 18 by the Times, is the latest Nepali woman to die from events related to the chaupadi practice, which has been condemned by the United Nations and global health organizations as cruel treatment of women, often in unsanitary conditions.

Roshani Tiruwa, a 15-year-old girl, died in December from smoke inhalation after she lighted a fire in the hut where she was banished while menstruating.

If they expend their energies on educating these folks in rural areas they would be saving innocent lives as opposed to taking innocent lives in the name of sacred cow.

Yeah. Educating communities about modern ways is very helpful in moving them out of dark ages. They might as well address the mutilation techniques used by monomaniacs for women; apparently, several get infections and suffer. Vitamin D deficiency is another issue. Many females in pieceful families have this problem. May be, they should ban burkha and allow women to go outside on their own. It makes no sense that women in tropical places have to suffer with vitamin D deficiency.....

What does an incident in Nepal have to do with the holy cow, Comrade?
