Sex is biologically determined, where as gender is socially constructed. YI identifies gender as the difference in social roles and range of characteristics that different sexes need to execute. The issues of gender inequality are being raised around the globe and Nepal has also faced the challenges while addressing the different issues of gender inequality. Despite of having many rules and laws, there are prejudices and stereotypes that a society sees in the roles of a man or a woman or a third gender. As a change maker, YI believes that youth can play a vital role in their family and in their community to change the scenario. YI has taken ‘Youth in Gender Equality’ as one of the cross cutting theme so as to promote Nepalese youth as change maker for gender equality.
