Book Cover

Edited by Madhavi Desai, this book interrogates, perhaps for the first time in South Asia, the incomprehension of society with issues of gender sensitivity in design and urban planning. It presents a multi-disciplinary perspective by scholars, practitioners, and professionals. Together they bring empirically grounded research and case studies that explore women’s lived experiences in the context of design and urban planning and a diverse and wide-ranging collection of related issues at different scales: from the city to neighbourhoods and public spaces, to new towns. The collection offers a slew of suggestions by addressing gender sensitivity in designing public spaces, urban mobility, resettlement and low-cost housing, and privatization, and finally deliberates on how women can claim their legitimate space in the social construction of the city.

Designed as a comprehensive handbook, this volume will be indispensable to scholars and students of gender studies, urban planning, city studies, architecture, and queer studies. It will be useful for think tanks, policymakers and practitioners concerned with gender and urban planning.
