In the foothills of the Himalayas is Her Farm Nepal, a matriarchal farming community created as a place of refuge for Nepali women who come from backgrounds of gender-based violence. This photo series documents the daily lives women who live at Her Farm Nepal: an all women, matriarchal farming community rooted in values equality, sustainability, and egalitarianism.
Property ownership continues to be tied to the patriarchy, as land is always registered under
a man’s name, particular one’s husband or father. The women of Her Farm have used the
ownership of property to create their own community & rethink male supremacy.
