Abstract:
The construction workers constitute one of the most significant types of workers in the unorganized sector. Hence, the present study is an attempt to analyze the empowerment of female construction workers in Thoothukudi District of Tamil Nadu. Empowering women is not just for meeting their economic requirements but also universal social development. Thus, it may conclude from the analysis of the findings of the present study that the life of the women tends to be better economically after joining construction work in both rural and urban areas.
