Outline India conducted a feminist perspective analysis on the dominant discourse of women’s safety being linked to Open Defecation (OD) in sanitation programming.
OI published an article describing how women are
targeted in the current policy and programmatic
environment around OD, critically engage with existing
evaluations of programs on OD, and explored how a
feminist evaluation approach can be utilized for
informing better programming and evaluations. The
paper critically assessed the policy and programmatic
environment around Open Defecation Elimination (ODE),
particularly with regard to women, while indicating limits
of predominant evaluations and measurement strategies.
It also focused on evaluations of ODE programming,
qualitative studies, and OI’s field experience in the space
of water and sanitation.
