18 Women 18 Stories - stories of 18 women who live in squatter settlements in Kathmandu, Nepal; and who are the principal income earners of their families. Their stories not only focusing their lives and destinies but also giving a picture of the security, social and economic status of the low income people specially the women in Nepal. Together with the stories, this book focuses on the methodology and findings of the research; the pros and cons of different stakeholders who are working for the development of the squatter settlements and the lives of the residents living there. Last but not least, interviews with the 18 women, laws of Nepal for women''s rights (lack of rights, educational opportunities, and income-earning potential, as well as being victims of violence and other degrading acts), and the diary of the researcher''s field work in Nepal make this book more interesting.
