Just finished this book, I'd bought it because it had been recommended to me by many people and I kept referring to the concept behind the book in conversations. First some technical details - I thought the numerous footnotes at the end of the book (62 pages of them!) made the book a bit tedious to read as I had to read the book with one finger at the back to follow the notes, which then interfered with the writing in the chapter. As a book that is hopefully meant for a non-academic audience, ma [...]

"Loiter without purpose and meaning. Loiter without being asked what time of the day it is, why we are here, what we are wearing, and whom we are with. That is when we will truly belong to the city and the city to us" (188)."We believe that it is only by claiming the right to risk that women can truly claim citizenship. To do this we need to redefine our understanding of violence in relation to public space--to see not sexual assault, but the denial of access to public space as the worst possibl [...]

An excellent book - well researched and thought provoking. The idea that women have a right to take risks, to loiter and denying them that is to deny them citizenship, is truly commendable. The book also argues that keeping women 'safe' in sheltered spaces, limiting their access to public spaces is a kind of violence, similar to the kind they may face otherwise. As an Indian woman brought up in Mumbai, I could definitely identify with all the points raised. A must read for sure.

a very beautifully worded work clear and precise and on the spot on narrating how women have to use the public spaces world over.

The sad thing is that I paid for this book for my kindle. I got bored reading this and liberally skipped pages. Much of the book is written in abstract terms, portrayal of women in public place, there might be a lot of trait of women which have been researched and written as a part of the book. Unfortunately, I don't like itI'm just wondering what is the motto of bringing this book. Reaching out to the masses hoping for a change in perceptions? Has the goal been achieved? Do the people who behav [...]

This book is my bible, it has inspired me to embark upon my own research to gain first experiences of the relationship between gender and public spaces. I travel solo on a budget across India to collect first hand experience of how safe or unsafe the public space is for solo woman traveler and how men women use the public space differently. The book raises the question whether women have the right to seek pleasure and can they access public space for so called non-productive reasons to have some [...]

The only complaint I have is that perhaps the constraint of the number of pages ensured that the researchers/authors had to fit in their observations in precise terms without any free flow. A very appropriate and apt topic, if only followed up with a longer piece of text. Recommended.

An excellent analysis of the open spaces of Bombay, this book was a delight to read. Highly recommended for its lucid writing and decoding of the city.
