Negotiating Gender Equity in the Global South: Domestic Violence - Sohela Nazneen

Season 2, Ep. 5

Domestic violence remains widespread in many countries. Approximately 1/3 of women globally experience some form of violence in their lifetime.

In this month’s episode of Between the Lines, IDS researcher, Sohela Nazneen discusses a book that she has co edited entitled, ‘Negotiating Gender Equity in the Global South: The Politics of Domestic Violence Policy.'

The book investigates the conditions under which countries in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia have adopted legislation against domestic violence. And, as Sohela explains, how broader domains of power need to be addressed if we are to have gender-inclusive policy outcomes.

Interviewing Sohela is economist and gender specialist, Professor Diane Elson.
