Paromita Mukherjee | Alapan Roy Chowdhury | Dr. Sanchita Saha

Abstract: India is in an alarming state when it comes to the participation of the female section of the society in active workforce. If this continues then a bleak future is imminent. However, some people have developed, or are trying to develop awareness, and are actively working on this. Some corporates are also encouraging this by collaborating with them, by helping them or by buying from them. Although the numbers are lesser if only the corporates are considered but the numbers are more if the many self - help organizations across India that are providing some sort of support, livelihood are taken into account. Thus, they help in empowering the womenfolk who in most cases belong to the underprivileged section of the society. The problem is that majority are part - time workers, and hence their percentage is not reflected in the female workforce participation data. The aim of the present study is to identify the factors that prevent the working mothers from working full time, and to analyze how they can be accommodated into the larger or full - time workforce which would get reflected in the female labour participation rate (FLPR). Also, this study intends to find out that working mothers? involvement can be considered as a good contributor to circular economy through sustainable development. The research is qualitative in nature and has been carried through interviews and surveys. Feedbacks have been taken from self - help organizations based in Kolkata and upon which recommendations have been made to bring both environmental sustainability and increased working mothers? participation on the same platform.
