Women, slums and urbanization

Women, slums and urbanisation: examining the causes and consequences.. Centre on Housing Rights and Evictions , 2008 (pdf, ful-text)

This report examines the worldwide phenomenon of urbanisation from the point of view of women’s housing rights. The report focuses, in particular, on the experiences of women and girls living in slum communities throughout the world, premised on the idea that both the causes and consequences of urbanisation for women are, in fact, unique and deeply related to issues of gender. The report highlights women’s experiences from Africa, Asia and the Americas and background information on the global realities of urbanisation, including trends and analysis.
