·         School toilets : queer, disabled bodies and gendered lessons of embodiment,  By – Jenny Slatter,  Charlotte  Jones & Lisa Procter


In this paper we argue that school toilets function as one civilising site [Elias, 1978. The Civilising Process. Oxford: Blackwell] in which children learn that disabled and queer bodies are out of place. This paper is the first to offer queer and crip perspectives on school toilets. The small body of existing school toilet literature generally works from a normative position which implicitly perpetuates dominant and oppressive ideals. We draw on data from Around the Toilet, a collaborative research project with queer, trans and disabled people ( to critically interrogate this work.

·         An intersectional perspective on Muslim Women’s issues and experiences in employment,  By – Memoona Tariq & Jawad Syed


Drawing on a qualitative study of secondgeneration Pakistani heritage Muslim women in employment in the UK, this article uses and develops an intersectional perspective to explain the interconnected and overlapping factors, such as gender, ethnicity and religion that affect these women at work. It also considers individual strategies and resources these women use to address any obstacles in the way of their employment and careers. The article uses the notions of inequality regimes and intersectionality to explain inequality in the workplace and the complex challenges facing Muslim female employees.

·         Technological Change, Skill Supply and Wage Distribution : Comparision of High-Technology and Low-Technology Industries in India,  By – Hansa Jain


The technological inflows on the one hand and the increase in skill supply on the other have influenced not only the production structure of Indian manufacturing industries, but also the distribution of wages among the skilled and unskilled workers. The present study examines the wage disparity scenario in high-technology and low-technology industries in India. With the help of industry-level panel data from 2000–2001 to 2015–2016, the study finds the important role of skill intensity in determining wage disparity between and within the groups of skilled and unskilled workers. Skill has greater concentration in high-technology industries.
