"Can I Have a House with a Door? Indian Women and Development." Hemalata Dandekar, a distinguished scholar of urban planning and globalization, will present a lecture as part of the University of Illinois at Chicago's "Gender and City Spaces" lecture series.

Dandekar will examine the complex meanings of access to home and shelter for women within the context of evictions, demolitions and other displacements resulting from runaway urbanization and modernization in India. Based on a 20-year longitudinal research project, the multimedia presentation will compare the experiences of rural and urban women in the first and third worlds.
