  • Building trust in a market for women vendors

    A female vendor in a mahila bazaar in New Delhi stares solemnly at the camera. A young man in the background is looking at the wares of a nearby vendor.

    Women selling wares in the mahila bazaar say they must fend off drunken men, sexual harassment, thieves and other hazards, but having a market of their own is better than trying to sell in markets dominated by men, where they are also hassled by police and municipal authorities.
