The All Nepal Women's Union (Revolutionary) is going to start an agitation against the publication of pornographic books and against anything they deem as anti-culture. The ANWA will start its anti-porn programme in the next couple of weeks. They will protest the indecent behaviour of customers in dance restaurants, fight for the protection of women and, in fact, attempt to close dance restaurants that appear to be flourishing all over the country.
A press release issued by the Kathmandu Valley chief of ANWA states that the union would try and pressurise dance restaurants, massage centres, and cabin restaurants to shut down, and try to halt the screening of films that portray women in a negative manner. They feel that women are being sexually abused in all these places and that if something is not done, then our society and culture will be destroyed. They have called on all these places to stop the activities by the middle of May, otherwise they will move in and take whatever action they feel is necessary to close them down. They have warned that they would not be responsible for any of the consequences.
The release further states that the government is corrupt, thinks only of taking kickbacks from the business class and treats women as commodities. Women are exploited in all places, big and small and the government, by not doing anything, seems to be encouraging such behaviour.
