Gendered Violence in Public Spaces: Women's Narratives of Travel in Neoliberal India (Hardcover)
Gendered Violence in Public Spaces: Women's Narratives of Travel in Neoliberal India examines the vulnerability of women in public spaces in India through an analysis of narrative representations ranging from emerging digital media, commercial Hindi films, and graphic narratives to accounts of real and lived experiences of women. In doing so, this collection initiates a scholarly discussion on manifold forms of emotional, mental, epistemic, and above all sexual violence female travelers face in male-dominated public spaces. Gendered Violence in Public Spaces therefore challenges contemporary readers to re-frame India's public spaces against misogyny and gendered violence.
