Waste work in the ‘clean city’: perspectives of women waste pickers

Date and Time


As marginalized urban workers in public spaces, women engaged in waste picking work in the informal economy offer important insights into rapidly changing urban spaces. This webinar presents findings from a study with women waste pickers in Ahmedabad, India. It highlights the impacts and implications that contemporary governance and discursive approaches to waste management and urban cleanliness have in the everyday lives of women workers in the urban margins.
