Disconnected Infrastructures and Violence Against Women (VAW)
Monday 24 June 2019 10:00am to Thursday 18 July 2019 8:00pm
Hosted by LSE Arts
Continuous and widespread Violence Against Women (VAW) in urban India highlights challenges in India’s cities. The UN Sustainable Development Goals seek to address these challenges through the call for gender equality (SDG 5) and safe and inclusive cities and communities (SDG 11). Notably, through ensuring urban planning and infrastructure is safe, accessible, affordable and sustainable and universal access to safe public spaces, particularly for traditionally marginalised groups such as women. Combined with this is an acute information and skills gap in technology use amongst urban poor women that impedes empowered use of urban infrastructures.
