Front Cover
Gyan Books, 2005 - Urban women - 349 pages
The book deals with the magnitude of crimes against women in the developed and the developing World context. Through two empirical case studies the spatial context of crime has been explained, especially how socia-economic parameters and the environment can play a role to promote crime and disorder in a city. Crime remedy is through good legislation. NGO's working on women's issues, the government while making policies and the media need to find ways to strengthen legislation to project the vulnerable women.
