Dalit Women And Water, Janice Lazarus 2017 University of Pennsylvania

Dalit Women And Water, Janice Lazarus

wH2O: The Journal of Gender and Water

The term Dalit means, “crushed” or “broken” and has come to represent those groups which have been traditionally considered to be outside the women in a hamlet in Mahabubnagar district of Andhra Pradesh (now Telangana), India, this paper highlights Dalit women’s experiences related to water use, collection and access that are often shaped by their caste and gender positions. The study is qualitative in nature and employs a phenomenological approach with interviews as the data-collection method. Water is scarce in this community and fetching water often takes place at privately owned wells where discrimination based on caste and gender ...

Assessment Of Water Provision And Associated Risks Among Children In Abeokuta Peri-Urban, Ogun State, Southwestern Nigeria: The Gender Implications, Adegbite A. Ayoade, Salako Sikiru, Okanlawon P.O

wH2O: The Journal of Gender and Water

An assessment of water supply challenges and risks facing children in selected peri-urban areas of Abeokuta (Akole-Oke Ata, Obatonko, Adigbe) in Ogun, southwestern Nigeria, was carried out during the dry season, in the months of November 2013 to February 2014. Recognizing that the yield of drinking water sources and water supply from the government were drastically reduced during the dry season, in this study, project leaders aimed to determine children’s involvement in household water provision during the dry season in the peri-urban of Abeokuta Ogun State Southwestern Nigeria, and to further determine the gender distribution, risks and risk indicators ...

The Impacts Of Water Shortages On Women’S Time-Space Activities In The High Density Suburb Of Mabvuku In Harare, Liliosa Pahwaringira, Lillian Chaminuka, Kwaedza Muranda-Kaseke

wH2O: The Journal of Gender and Water

The purpose of this study was to assess how water scarcity affects women’s time-space activity. Time-space activity refers to the lateral distance between locations. In this context time is taken when traveling to and fro collecting water. Space refers to the radius covered. The study was carried out in Mabvuku, a high-density suburb of Harare, Zimbabwe, following observations and reports of serious shortages of water in the area. A case study approach was employed for the study and respondents were selected using purposive and snowball sampling. Data was collected using questionnaires, structured interview guides, and observational surveys. The study ...

Gender Dynamics In Water Governance Institutions: The Case Of Gwanda’S Guyu-Chelesa Irrigation Scheme In Zimbabwe, Emelder M. Tagutanazvo, Vupenyu T. Dzingirai, Everisto Mapedza, Barbara Van Koppen

wH2O: The Journal of Gender and Water

The need to incorporate women in development interventions has widely been highlighted in development literature. Despite recent attempts to include women in such efforts, the FAO’s 2011 State of the Agriculture Report points out that gender imbalance is still a major concern. This study focuses on the Guyu-Chelesa irrigation scheme in Zimbabwe in an attempt to understand women’s involvement in water governance institutions that are set up around these schemes. At one level, women are well-represented in these institutions. Nonetheless, despite their representation in positions of high-level decision making, their actual decision-making power is limited. For this reason ...

Conceptualizing A Hybrid Framework To Help Improve Gender Outcomes In Water, Sanitation And Hygiene Programs In India, Sunetra Lala, Aidan A. Cronic, Malika Basu, Jyotsna Nirvana

wH2O: The Journal of Gender and Water

Developing and managing water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) programs in a sustainable manner contributes to gender equity by improving men’s and women’s access to services and benefits. A gender-sensitive approach to ensure equity in WASH programs can achieve positive outcomes including participatory decision making, empowerment of women, and sustainable programs.

Gender analysis frameworks have a long history in development practice to guide strengthened gender outcomes, and opportunities exist to learn from such frameworks to support implementation of WASH programs in developing countries, including India. This paper reviews seven well-established gender analysis frameworks from the Indian WASH context vis-à-vis ...


The Theatre And The Latrine: Examining Women’S Health Narratives As A Means For Creating Sustainable Sanitation Infrastructure, Victoria Cano 2017 University of Pennsylvania

The Theatre And The Latrine: Examining Women’S Health Narratives As A Means For Creating Sustainable Sanitation Infrastructure, Victoria Cano

wH2O: The Journal of Gender and Water

In the summer of 2013, I traveled to Dhaka, Bangladesh to directly observe the relationship between gender advancement and national improvements in sanitation practices. My research and experiences in Bangladesh have led me to the conclusion that, while a great deal has been accomplished in terms of improved sanitation, further improvements cannot be made unless the critical importance of Bangladeshi women, including their sanitation needs and their pivotal position as role models of sanitary behavior, are placed at the forefront of Bangladesh’s, and the world’s, sanitation stratagem. I believe that one of the most effective tools to support ...

Beyond Distance And Time: Gender And The Burden Of Water Collection In Rural Uganda, Richard B. Asaba, G. Honor Fagan, Consolata Kabonesa, Firminus Mugumya

wH2O: The Journal of Gender and Water

This paper explores the gender differences in water collection in Makondo Parish in Uganda as a case study. Our analysis is based on data col­lected from a cross-sectional survey, in-depth interviews, focus groups, and participant observation in the study area. This data confirms that children and women are most burdened by water collection. Unless it is for commercial or work-related reasons or when there is a long drought, men rarely fetch water. Our study further reveals that children and women walk distances of less than half a kilometre to more than two kilometres on rugged and hilly roads and ...
