The report of International Labour Organization says India’s rank hasn’t improved in the global index of women workforce, with only 27% contributing to the national GDP. A wide variety of economic and social factors including economic growth, increasing educational attainment, falling fertility rates and social norms are the driving factors to this unwanted dip. In addition to these issues, social norms determining the role of women in the public domain continue to affect outcomes in our country even in 2019.
With poor performance of our national authorities at reforms and policy making, corporates and social bodies have taken the responsibility of stabilizing and re-forming the work culture. The organizations are challenging the biggest and the foremost roadblock of minimum educational attainment, which gets directly affected due to our country’s patriarchal mindset creating a domino effect to this global shame.
