This thesis draws on the voices of young Dalit women in Achham, Nepal to understand the complex intersections of marginalisation and poor reproductive health in the context of a developing country. Employing feminist research methods, thesis explores the key reproductive life events in women’s lives  menstruation, marriage and childbirth. The study found that young Dalit women shared common vulnerabilities and trajectories of reproductive life events shaped by the intersections of the structural identities of marginalization: gender, caste/ethnicity, and regional location. However young women negotiated these challenges based on their agency shaped by education, marital status, family circumstances, and income
