Abstract

Studies show that adverse socioeconomic conditions create low self-esteem and insecurity among men, who find expression in aberrant behaviors, including violence against women. In this light, Nikita Singla considers the link between slums and gender violence, and writes that rather than pursuing a ‘Slum free India’, gender inclusive slums should be the primary target in urban policymaking.
