Abstract

Using geographical information systems and participatory mapping with women from low‐income areas of Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India, revealed their fears of violence against them, but equally the spatiotemporal ‘dark spots’ where this might occur. This in turn influenced infrastructure policy and provoked the introduction of a ‘she corridor’. Ayona Datta, a professor of geography at University College London, and Nabeela Ahmed, postdoctoral research fellow at the Sheffield Institute of International Development, tell us how.
