Nepal; town life in the Khumbu, 1986. A street in Namche Bazar (altitude 3446 metres). Men relax outside a store. In the mid-1980s, Nepal was rigidly patriarchical although Sherpa women had more autonomy than other groups. Women generally had limited access to markets, education, health care and local government. Malnutrition and poverty hit them the hardest, and female children were usually given less food than male children, especially during food shortages.
