The Way She Moves

This paper examines the everyday practice of gendered public space through an analysis of three "mapping" studies conducted in Mumbai. The first study attempted to document and represent public spaces onto drawings through observation. The second study was based on a participatory research methodology and came about through two simple exercises developed for pedagogic activities. These studies, conducted under the Gender and Space project at Pukar, focused on how male and female bodies locate themselves in and move through public space in their everyday negotiation of space, in the process participating in the production and reproduction of a hegemonic gender-space.
