Women, Paid Work and Empowerment in India: A Review of Evidence and Issues
The paper is an attempt to review critically the association between womenâ€™s paid work and empowerment in India. As a prelude, the author seek to assess the extent of womenâ€™s participation in paid work during the last three decades (section two), and offer a glimpse into the nature and quality of womenâ€™s work in India (section three). A discussion on the probable causes underlying womenâ€™s participation in paid work becomes necessary (section four) so as to assess and contextualise the empowering potentials of womenâ€™s paid work (section five). An attempt will also be made to reflect on the issues arising from the assessment with a view to suggest, if necessary, possible directions for further work (section six).[CWDS OP]
