Work force participation of women in India: A factor that needs reform

Dr. Seema Bhakuni

Earlier, women who were given due respect in the epics, generally depicted as a good wife or a good mother. Gradually things changed and the social reformers got admiration as great women. Later the warrior women came into picture and created history. And things changed to many women becoming politicians, astronauts, actress, scientists, doctors and what not. Even after all this, women’s participation in workforce is negligible if compared to their male counterparts. There are many factors which lead to women leaving their jobs. Sometimes they leave because they can’t adjust their timings with their profession, sometimes it’s the culture that depicts a good woman sacrificing her professional life for her family, at times they face discrimination in the workplace and leave, and some leave because of harassment at the workplace. These reasons are still present in the world but due to the introduction of many acts and laws in favour of the women, their participation ratio has increased considerably. Gradually, women participation rate in the workforce is heading towards the pinnacle as education and globalization has changed the mindset of the society. Women intellect is now recognized and the importance of their participation in the workforce is also accepted as the need of the hour to become competitive in the global village
