This site is invaluable! Lots of very in-depth studies and research contributions in the Publication Tab. What I found most interesting were the challenges faced by women in poor Indian urban areas with regards to their access to communal bathrooms: women reported being harassed for money or sexually assaulted at night even when they went in groups.

Hi Anya, I just looked at the Women in Cities website and was astounded at the information it provides and the networks of other organizations and people it connects. In fact, many of the projects and initiatives that others have noted on this platform are also a part of the Women in Cities initiative (like Safe Delhi: http://www.openideo.com/challenge/womens-safety/research/ensuring-eyes-on-the-street). Great find! We should definitely use this as a resource for the ideas phase. Also, if you know of anyone closely affiliated with the Women in Cities initiative, it would be great if you could invite them to join this conversation! It would be really helpful to learn more from their experiences and collaborate.

Hi Jamie, thanks so much for your comment! I'm doing this project with a couple of friends/classmates, and we managed to get an interview with Kathryn, the director of programmes. I'm still in the process of transcribing the interview though. :) (so stay tuned?)
