" admitted Isner, among other measures. Utah,Women and Transport in Indian Cities,by the Institute for Transportation & Development Policy (ITDP) and Safetipin For instance women tend to combine multiple destinations within one trip – to pick up groceries on the way back from office or drop a child off to childcare on the way to work “Gender-responsive transportation recognises not only the differences in the way men and women travel but also addresses the inequities which women and girls face as users transport workers and decision makers” said urban planner and the report’s lead author Sonal Shah The goal of such an approach is to “enable women and girls’ access to social and economic opportunities” Safety concerns means women can’t leave home Momeena’s family moved to Bawana from Yamuna Pushta in the early 2000s Like the other houses on her lane her house has no attached toilet and since her daughter cannot be carried to the community toilet she goes to the toilet on her bed and Momeena just washes the sheets everyday Like the other residents here she gets running water for two hours every morning “Public policy can address inequalities in the household division of labour by supporting initiatives that reduce the amount of time women spend doing unpaid work” noted a 1995 World Bankstudy Improved water sanitation electrification and public transport are examples of policy intervention that would enable women to devote more of their time to income-generating income-augmenting and income-saving activities said the study Momeena’s house is located on one of the many identical narrow bylanes of the slum lined with open sewers goats and chickens running alongside Piles of garbage lie rotting Flies are everywhere But more than the lack of sanitation for most parents the big concern is the lack of safety Described as the ‘most crime-wracked borough in the most crime-wracked city in the country’ outer Delhi (including Bawana) saw 1093 abductions of children – an average of three a day – between 1 June 2014 and 31 March 2015 according to National Crime Records Bureau data For parents this means extraordinary vigilance Many mothers are simply unable to leave their children unattended and unsupervised for long hours Momeena’s younger daughter is looked after by her elder daughter who is in the seventh grade Her parents who live above her keep an eye on the girls Is she worried about their safety when she’s gone Momeena shrugged but looked away Shafeeqan who also uses one name has a husband who doesn’t have a regular job So she needs to supplement the household income which she does by packingagarbattis(incense sticks) at home After sorting them according to size she must make bundles of exactly 44 similar-sizedagarbattis six of these bundles are then slipped into in a tight plastic sheath cover For every 1000 of these bundles of six – roughly a full day’s work – she is paid Rs 25 “It’s very hard work but I don’t have a choice since I can’t go out and work until my daughter gets married” she said Bawana was once slated to be the great industrial hub of Delhi with small and medium enterprises churning out plastic toys shoes handbags garments fans light bulbs biscuits and so on This dream didn’t quite materialise and according to onereport over 5500 of 16000 factories and industrial plots are either vacant or not operational The women prefer factory jobs such as they are because they pay better than piecemeal work done at home even though most pay only a third of the legally-mandated minimum wage of Rs 14052 Jamuna Kumari who quit school after the sixth grade has worked in various factories since she was 13 She earns Rs 8500 at her present job at a readymade garments factory working eight hours a day six days a week Both Jamuna’s parents work in factories as do two elder sisters The youngest is still in school in the 11th grade The responsibility of getting dinner ready falls on this sister “Someone has to cook since we’re all exhausted when we get back” shrugged Jamuna Like most women who work in factories Jamuna prefers to walk to work It’s a 30-minute walk each way along the Bawana Canal a long narrow stretch of water where boys can be seen swimming and older men drinking and doing drugs Petty theft along this canal is so commonplace that it is often not even reported to the police said Jamuna The real danger is of more serious crimes against women including rape and so Jamuna knows better than to walk to work and back alone Groups of boys pass lewd comments but it’s a daily hazard that she has learned to ignore she said Sexual harassment on public spaces in Delhi is now so commonplace that it has become a stereotype – a fact of life that girls and women like Jamuna take in their stride Sexual harassment in public places is rampant and an overwhelming concern of 854 percent women – higher than fears of a violent physical attack and even rape – found a 2010studyof 5010 women and men in Delhi by the NGO Jagori Almost two of three women reported facing sexual harassment between two to five times over the previous year The harassment occurred day and night in places secluded and crowded with most being reported from buses public transport and roadsides found the report Anotherreportby ActionAid released in 2016 found that 79 percent of women surveyed had experienced some form of harassment in public ‘Transportation is the fulcrum that gets women to jobs’ The December 2012 gangrape and murder of a young medical student in a bus in Delhi resulted in a focus on safety in public transportation Various schemes have been announced from GPS tracking and video recording in public transport vehicles in 32 cities to a proposal for women-only ‘Tejaswini’ buses with women drivers and conductors in 2016 in Maharashtra “What we need currently is an economic development and a rights-based approach as well as concrete recommendations and actions to be taken by different stakeholders” said Sonal Shah the urban planner “Since gender is not a core competence in urban local bodies there is a gap in understanding what they need to do” “Transportation is the fulcrum that allows women to participate in the workforce” said Shah Yet the factories prefer hiring younger women said Radha a social worker with Jagori who lives in Bawana The reasons are many: Women workers are paid less and they don’t generally unionise or agitate for their rights When a fire at a firecracker storage unit broke out on 21 January 2018 10 of the 17 workers killed were women The women don’t mind working in the factories because this is the best work they can get for their limited education said Radha But after 40 it is impossible to get any work in the factories Aarti Devi was laid off some six months ago and now does piecemeal work for a fan factory assembling a plastic part that she calls a ‘conductor’ making Rs 90 for every 1000 ‘conductors’ she assembles by screwing eight tiny bolts with an equally tiny screwdriver It’s a job that strains her eyes and so when her kids are home everybody pools in and helps her complete her required 1000 pieces Aarti Devi does piecemeal work for a fan factory assembling a plastic part that she calls a ‘conductor’ making Rs 90 for every 1000 ‘conductors’ It’s a job that strains her eyes and so when her kids are home everybody pools in and helps her complete her required 1000 pieces The women are vulnerable to the slightest fluctuations in the job market Immediately after demonetisation many lost jobs as did their husbands “I sat at home for five months without any work” said Jamuna “It was an awful time” This is the latest in an ongoing nation-wide IndiaSpend investigation into India’s declining female labour force participation Read previous
