Reconsidering Politics in Unusual Places

(p.113) 6 Conclusion
Gendered Citizenship

Natasha Behl

Oxford University Press

The concluding chapter returns to the 2012 gang rape and murder of Jyoti Singh to reanalyze this horrific incident in light of the research findings, and to discuss the implications of the analysis for the study of gender equality, citizenship, and democracy in India and beyond. Behl puts her experience of SGBV in direct relation with the gang rape case and with the findings from the Sikh community to call attention to the dangers that lurk in every case of SGBV, from its most extraordinary to the more mundane expression in daily life. She shares her own experience to critically reflect on her positionality as a diasporic researcher, with attention to the ways participants and she coconstruct the data, and to the ways her own blind spots impact the research process. Lastly, she asks if political science as a discipline is willing to listen to new forms of knowledge production.
