ROUGH ROADS TO EQUALITY - Women Police in Bangladesh

Dec 08, 2015 Download File

This report critically examines the situation of women in policing in Bangladesh. It is based on the premise that gender equality, besides being a value to be upheld in and of itself, is a vital attribute for effective and genuinely impartial law enforcement. At its core, the report champions the inclusion of women in policing on the utilitarian ground that in today’s policing the maximum police functions can be performed by either gender and there is little to support the myth that policing is a ‘man’s work’ alone.
