When she was 15, Rachana Sunar fought off child marriage in rural Nepal - eventually transforming herself into an activist for the rights of women and girls across the spectrum, a true champion of #GenerationEquality.

As the world celebrates the Generation Equality Forum 2021, Rachana recounts her story in this this special video prepared for the regional launch of My Body is My Own - UNFPA's flagship State of World Population Report 2021, the first-ever United Nations report on the theme of bodily autonomy.

Rachana is a longtime partner of UNFPA in Nepal and Asia-Pacific - partnering with us in advocating to end child marriage and all harmful practices against women and girls, one of UNFPA's transformative results.
