Gender Segregation in Rural India

Gender Segregation in Rural India

Thamtube No Comments

In some North Indian towns and villages, it’s an age-old tradition for unmarried boys to live in a room outside of the home called the “baithak”, separated particularly from the women of the family. The boys, aged between 6 and 20 years old, enter their own houses only for meals and hang out in these “baithaks” during the day. VICE World News travels to Rajasthan and Haryana in India, to see why some villages follow this system of separating families on the basis of sex and understand the rarely documented “Baithak” System.
