    Description

    Presenting an original take on women's safety in the cities of twenty-first century India, Why Loiter? maps the exclusions and negotiations that women from different classes and communities encounter in the nation's urban public spaces. Basing this book on more than three years of research in Mumbai, Shilpa Phadke, Sameera Khan and Shilpa Ranade argue that though women's access to urban public space has increased, they still do not have an equal claim to public space in the city. And they raise the question: can women's access to public space be viewed in isolation from that of other marginal groups? Going beyond the problem of the real and implied risks associated with women's presence in public, they draw from feminist theory to argue that only by celebrating loitering"a radical act for most Indian women"can a truly equal, global city be created.

    Brilliant and inspirational, a new feminist classic

    This book is of the kind that should be required reading for all students, male and female. It makes a profoundly radical case for women's use of public space for no other reason than pure pleasure i.e. loitering. Women of all types and classes are studied.
    There are ideas in here that will make you question the things you take for granted in Indian cities. Sociological analysis is supplied with insightful details on how public infrastructure inhibits women's mobility in Mumbai. The prose is ...
