Isolation of menstruating women criminalised
Lawmakers in Nepal have passed a law criminalising a practice that forces women from their homes during menstruation.
Under the law anyone who makes a woman observe the custom faces a three-month jail sentence and a $30 (£23) fine.
The practice, known as chhaupadi, has been in the spotlight recently after two women died while sleeping in sheds.
Campaigners say the legislation must be properly enforced, but say behaviour also needs to change.
