Public Toilets for Young Urban Women

Update: 5-March-2020

Public Toilets for Young Urban Women looks at both quantitative and qualitative parameters that determine the gender responsiveness of public services and has a two-fold objective. Firstly, to learn whether or not public services, especially public and community toilets, in low income areas across six cities are gender responsive, and secondly to understand the needs, demands and challenges of young women in urban areas and translate them into insightful recommendations for policy makers, civil society organisations and donors to address some of these issues in a holistic manner.

This research builds on ActionAid Association’s project entitled “Young Urban Women:Life Choices and Livelihood” that addresses young urban women’s economic security, sexual and reproductive health and rights and access to public services. The data collection was conducted across Bhubaneswar, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai, with the help of teams from ActionAid Association’s regional offices leading interventions in Andhra Pradesh & Telangana, Maharashtra, North India, Odisha, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal.
