Jadhav and Weitzman find women without home sanitation at greater risk of rape in India

a PSC In The News reference

"Higher incidents of rape in India linked to open defecation" - The Indian Express. 12/15/2016.

A new study by PSC postdocs Apoorva Jadhav and Abigail Weitzman, and former PSC postdoc Emily Smith-Greenaway, finds that Indian women lacking a home toilet, and who practice open defecation, are at about twice the risk of non-partner sexual violence than women with a household toilet. About 300 million women and girls in India have no access to bathrooms. “This is an urgent need that cannot be ignored anymore,” Jadhav says.
