Panel 1: Urbanization, Gender and the Labor Market

This session looks at recent work conducted across Delhi, Dhanbad, Indore, Patna, and Varanasi — by the Center for the Advanced Study of India (CASI) at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Pennsylvania Institute for the Advance Study of India (UPIASI) —  on gender inequalities in the household, low physical mobility of women, and poor female labor force outcomes. We discuss and present data on the role that urban planning and structure have to play in the observed outcomes, and how these factors interact with social and demographic factors.
