Impact of NGOs on women’s mobility in public life: An Empirical study in Rural Bangladesh

Faraha Nawaz, Helen McLaren

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

Traditionally women have been denied participation in public life in Bangladesh due to restrictions on their mobility. Poverty, patriarchy and inequality are core reasons for restricted mobility; the most obvious is that more women than men do not own or drive cars, and they rely more on public transport. However, public transport is not available in many regions or at night, and women’s fear of crime is high.
