Gendered Public Policy
Chapter 9 turns to the gendered impact of public policy and the potential of rights-based public policy as a response to violence. First, we will chronicle the diffusion of global models of gendered public policy on urban planning, transportation, sanitation, and social services. Next, we will trace the emergence of new models of policing and social services to address family violence in Turkey, Brazil, South Africa, Mexico, and El Salvador. Moving from protection to prevention, we will examine how transnational programs and coalitions for urban safety, sanitation, and transportation respond to the sexual violence tracked above in India, South Africa, Colombia, and Mexico, as well as similar problems in slum areas in Kenya. We will also consider burgeoning efforts to ensure safe schools and refugee protection.
