Abstract:
This paper reviews the status of working women in India. Women make up almost half of the workforce. In India both married and unmarried women, now a days are not dependent on anyone and they earn for their own needs as well as for their family needs. The number of working women across the world has increased drastically. Now a days the women are very open to accepting and facing new challenges. Despite there is huge women involvement in almost all the countries in the society, some narrow minds still consider women as home makers and they born to live within the boundaries of four walls of house. Women in the present context are playing many roles such as investors, consumers, entrepreneurs, scientists, lawyers and doctors. They not only contribute positively to the needs of the family, but also they create number of job opportunities to strengthen the domestic and world economy. In fact, women play a role to increase the economic growth of the country. Hence, they used to entering into sectors that were reserved only for men (pilots, defense, drivers).
