Social construction of Newar women of Kirtipur

Roji Maharjan
The social construction of Newar women highlights the narratives of Newar women one of the ethnic groups of Nepal centralized in the capital city. Newars are scattered all over the country, but their primary roots relate to Kathmandu valley. Though for outsiders all Newars are predefined as the same, it has diversity within based on the caste hierarchy, gender, geography, religion, and language itself. So, this book highlights one of the oldest and historically rich Newar towns, Kirtipur, and its women. This book primarily answers what makes a Newar woman? How their collective identity defines them and also emphasizes their significant role in family and community
