Manju Mishra

Abstract: This paper is an attempt to study the quality of life of women working in the construction in Uttar Pradesh. The quality of life, in general, is the standard of health, comfort, and happiness experienced by an individual or group. As the nature of the job in the construction industry is very unstable, unorganized, poor wage and has other barriers, it is difficult to have better quality of life of a working woman in the construction. There is some goodness to the qualified and well-placed women but very critical for the women working on the sites at lower level like unskilled worker and semi-skilled worker. The challenges like work life balance, hectic working schedule, unsafe and unhealthy working and living environment, safety issues during the work, physical and mental harassment, gender biasness, poor growth opportunities and several other factors are the influencing factors of the quality of life of working women in construction. Government and other agencies are working very seriously to improve the quality of life of these work forces.
