Sex, Gender and Disability in Nepal: Marginalised Narratives and Policy Reform (Routledge ISS Gender, Sexuality and Development Studies) 1st Edition: https://www.routledge.com/Sex-Gender-and-Disability-in-Nepal-Marginalised-Narratives-and-Policy/Acharya/p/book/9780367358792
This book explores the sex lives of women with disabilities in Nepal, showing that many women suffer more than men despite prevailing disability policies that emphasize non-discrimination against people with disabilities. The book also argues that far from general perceptions of women as asexual, women with disabilities are capable of leading highly creative and fulfilling sexual lives. Using critical sexual theory and postcolonial studies as critical frameworks, the book investigates the narratives of authors with disabilities, exploring policy gaps and the need for supportive gender and sexual policies through the words of those affected. In particular, the book analyzes five female Nepali authors with disabilities: Radhika Dahal, Jhamak Ghimire, Sabitri Karki, Parijaat, and Mira Sahi, demonstrating the need for supportive gender policies to address the emotional and psychological needs of women with disabilities. Overall, the book argues that disciplinary discourses in practice often consider sex or sexuality as taboo, barely recognizing women in the context of marriage and family, and therefore creating gaps between policies and marginalized narratives. This book provides important insights into sex and disability within the context of the Global South, and as such will be of interest not only to researchers working on Nepal, but also to scholars across gender studies, disability studies, international development, and postcolonialism.
