Abstract:
With growing urbanization, developing countries have seen a sharp rise in women's participation in the informal sector which does not require highly skilled, educated labour. The study found that the socio-economic status of the women vendors was poor, mostly middle- aged married women from the lowest social groups (ST, SC and OBC). Many of the vendors had minimal resources to run their business and were the sole income earners in their families.
