About

The largest concentration of women working in the construction industry in any country is in India. This is in sharp contrast to the systematic exclusion of women from good jobs in the construction trades in western economies. To understand the contradictions between access and exclusion, between good jobs and bad for women in the global construction industry, one must understand the working and labor conditions of women in the Indian industry. This is the purpose of my project, “Building bridges: A comparative study of women working in the construction industry in India and the US.” I have received a Fulbright Award to conduct this study in 2016 and 2017 and will be reporting on my observations here.

    Susan I just read your proposal, you certainly have taken a large ‘bite’ of work. I look forward to reading as you systematically report on your successes.
