dc.description.abstractThe notion of space as a physical idea or a static social structure has changed over the years. It is no more a fixed geographical place; instead, it is understood more in terms of its link with the social sphere. Space is also experienced as a form of control for groups like women, limiting their outward mobility. Nevertheless, this paper argues that the same space is also used as a site for women’s actualization, breaking free of gender constraints, and achieving power. Applying the spatial perspective in gender studies and linking it with the architectural realities of spatial location, the paper examines how the idea and practice of space could be a source of advantage for men and disadvantage to the rural women of Kerala and attempts to capture the women’s efforts to subvert such disparities, with reference to the Kudumbasree programme.en_US
