Nepal Women hail menstruation ruling
Good Lord. I had trouble believing this, but I also struggle to understand how they intend to enforce the new law, if this situation happens, as they say, "in far western districts of the country". Add this to women throwing themselves on the funeral pyres of their husbands and being sent to jail for life for abortion.

When you try to apply the rules and strictures of modern culture to societies that still operate in 16th century conditions and cultures - how exactly do you enforce new laws on these peoples? More importantly, should we?
