CREA's Count Me IN! Research Report on Violence Against Disabled, Lesbian, and Sex-working Women in Bangladesh, India, and Nepal

in INDIA, 08/05/2012

CREA is pleased to share their 'Count Me IN! Research Report on Violence Against Disabled, Lesbian, and Sex-working Women in Bangladesh, India, and Nepal.' The report was recently launched at the 12th AWID International Forum in Istanbul, Turkey.

We conducted this research study in partnership with University College London (UCL); James P Grant School of Public Health, BRAC University, Bangladesh; Society for Nutrition, Education, and Health Action (SNEHA), India; and Centre for Research onEnvironment Health and Population Activities (CREHPA), Nepal. This report collates the Findings and recommendations that emerged from the three country studies carried out by the research partners, under the aegis of CREA and UCL.

The FIndings of the research show the overwhelming prevalence of violence in the lives of these three groups of women, and help us understand how, in many ways, violence still remains the most powerful tool for gender subordination. Despite many legal achievements of the women's movements in these three South Asian countries, violence has systemically been used by State and non-State actors to exclude marginalised women from freely, fully, and fearlessly participating as rights-bearing citizens in the public and private spheres.

In India and Nepal, the key findings from the study were discussed with policymakers to gauge the political acceptability of the recommendations. A chapter in the report presents the findings on the political feasibility of the recommendations, based on our interviews with policymakers.

Please download the report at the foot of this page. Email me your feedback, comments, and queries. The report will also be available on the CREA website http://www.creaworld.org/.
