In the world’s 188 economies, India is 170th in the case of women’s labor force. A total of 27 percent of women in India are working. According to a research, there is a possibility of further decline.
Despite the lack of education and lack of reproduction, lack of participation in women in the economic sector is a matter of concern.
Women’s contribution to India’s economic progress is greatly reduced. Second, the status of working women is better in their homes. Because of this, they can not make the right decisions related to the development of themselves and children.
There is a great reason for lack of proper functioning of Indian women due to lack of proper environment in the office space.
Due to conservative thinking women are seen connecting with the good economic level of men to stay at home. According to a survey, the number of such thinking people is more than 40 percent. In the US, in 1972, even those who thought this was less than 30 percent. Indian women mostly think that way.
In a 2011 national survey, more than a third of the households living in the country expressed their desire to go out and work. It is also proved from the evidence that a citizen and political consciousness develops in women who work outside, which is beneficial for communities, society and ultimately the country.
To deal with the conservative thinking associated with women’s work, the government should stop people who have such thoughts directly and indirectly. The Organization for the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) suggests that giving child care subsidies increases the chances of women’s work. But in the name of facilitating working women in India, either crèches or daycare are either closed or there are not only available where they are most needed.
Giving parental leave also has a positive effect on the working of women. Recently, India’s maternal-holiday policy is being fulfilled on international standards. But innumerable women working in the informal sector are not covered under this policy. Therefore, they avoid avoiding employment.
The policy towards women adopted by developed countries in our patriarchal society cannot be effective. Therefore, the use of time and the economic benefits associated with the use of Indian women should be made public. Understanding the bottlenecks in their way, policies should be made according to them. Then they will get equal opportunity to work.
