What is the most important aspect of being an empowered woman?
Women need to be fiercely independent and should know their rights. I believe education is the most important aspect of being an empowered woman.

What would you change about our society so that more women can lead empowered lives?
There are many barriers which do not allow women to grow and develop even if when they have the resources and the brains for it. To overcome this barrier I feel women should get a strong education and become independent. I believe that the government should introduce free education in Nepal at all levels.
