The students of the Sadhana Centre for Management and Leadership Development (SCMLD) approached them to co–ordinate this survey for their subject ‘How gender–friendly is the city?’.
Gandhi added that the whole survey was done by the girls and that they only provided guidance and facilities. The findings of this survey reveal that the city does not have washrooms in fair numbers.
Gandhi added that while Pune has 48 women corporators and 4 woman MLAs, women still don’t have clean washrooms. This survey will now be submitted to the PMC. The information revealed that the city has only 90 to 120 washrooms for women, most of which are unclean.
Litty Thomas, Maithili Gururani, Mitali Thadani, Monika Ramrakhani, Neha Varde, Padmini Patil, Reena Nain, Utsavi Jani, Vrushali Vishnoi and Yogini Somani are the girld who did this survey.
They told Pune Mirror that their institute has not only taught them management but also leadership. This survey was a part of their first term course work and through it they learnt more about society.
It was done in 15 days, from June 1 to June 16 this year. This involved speaking with women at Hadapsar, Kothrud, Sinhagad Road, Aundh, Pune Railway Station and Market Yard, from every strata of society. They visited bus stops, railway stations, market places, colleges and roads.
