A Ritual of Exile: Blood Speaks  investigates normalized violence against women in Nepal. Perpetrated under the guise of Hindu tradition, the root cause of this violence is the belief in the impurity of a women’s menstrual blood. Hidden, under-reported and unresolved, these women are untouchable and, as a result, this violence takes the form of ‘exile.'  The hardcover book will have appoximately 60 images and associated text.  It is available for pre-order in our bookstore.
