Women's Right Under Indian Labour Laws: An Analysis

Dr. Arshi Pal Kaur | Dr. Amandeep Kaur [3]

Abstract: Women make up half of the world's population, work two - thirds of the world's working hours, earn one - tenth of the world's income and own less than one - tenth of the world's wealth. From time immemorial, women have been accorded the highest and most respected place in society in India. In the Vedic age, women attained a high position in society and played important roles in all spheres including cultural, social, religious and political. His condition worsened after the Vedic period. They were confined within the confines of the home and their role was limited to traditional household chores like cooking, housekeeping and raising children. They should not have found any lucrative employment outside the family. This hampered their economic development and reduced their social status. The history of women's participation in productive employment is recent. After the Industrial Revolution, the social situation changed all over the world and in India. The family is no longer the center of production. Industrialization and urbanization gave rise to new social values. Employment opportunities, economic hardship and favorable cultural and social conditions encouraged women to seek employment outside the home. After the independence of the country, the number of women increased day by day. Although the entry of women into the work force has raised their economic and social status, it has given rise to many problems and difficulties for them through exploitation, discrimination and depressing working conditions. Problems and difficulties multiplied due to their strange social, biological and psychological conditions and due to their illiteracy and ignorance discrimination and exploitation required them to be given some protection and protection by law. The Constitution of India, among other things, provides for the protection and safety of women workers.
