Land Use Policy, 2021, vol. 110, issue C
•Men and women in low-income areas of Dhaka, Bangladesh reported the similar level dwelling ownership. The gender equality is interesting in a context where gender gaps in property ownership in general are large.•The level of gender equality in reported housing ownership is also in line with other dimensions of rights (such as rights to sell, rent out, and bequeath).•Women express greater concern about eviction than men (22 percent versus 15 percent).•Documented ownership (essentially the perceived ownership based on documents that can be used as evidence of occupancy rights) is correlated with perceived tenure security; by having a form of housing ownership document, women’s concerns about eviction reduces by 23 percentage points, compared to 11 percentage points for men.
