jobs why are they quitting What’s holding them back The power of choice the shame of a working wife: Complex reasons Ongoing research andIndiaSpend’s own on-the-ground reporting suggests a complex web of constraints that keep women away from the workplace Chief amongst these is the issue of women’s agency A man is expected to have a paid job When he seeks one he needs nobody’s permission Girls and women on the other hand almost without exception must have the permission of their fathers brothers husbands and in some cases even village panchayats in order to work or even learn skills that will make them employable In Haryana’s Jhajjar district Jyoti Kadian currently employed in a steel factory will be getting married in November to a navy man who has told her he has no objections to her working —but only in a government job “I’m trying to get one but it’s not easy” said Kadian conscious that time is running out In Mumbai Naseema Sheikh the daughter of a plumber joined a four-month

leave home alone’ Social norms about appropriate behaviour for women and the enforcement of these norms by parents in-laws and husbands dictates their ability to seek employment The 2011 Indian Human Development Survey finds that a sizeable number of women need to take permission from a family member to even go to the market or health centre said Rohini Pande of Harvard Kennedy School “In the end it’s pretty difficult to look for a job if you can’t leave the house alone” she said Even when women are ‘allowed’ to work there are conditions that must be met Is the job close to home Are there fixed working hours that will allow her to be back in time to cook the dinner and put the kids to bed Is safe and inexpensive public transportation available Safety is emerging as a key concern said Farzana Afridi associate professor with the Indian Statistical Institute Public spaces are dominated by men Moreover there’s a dire shortage of infrastructure that would enable women’s participation in the workplace — hostels for working women and crèches for their children for instance “Managements will often tell you how women make for very reliable employees with low absenteeism and attrition rates” said Afridi “But not many are prepared to provide the infrastructure that would enable their fuller participation” Medha Uniyal programme director of the Pratham Institute was more blunt: “When you have women on the payroll you are legally required to provide facilities like a crèche So a lot of employers have a clear mandate of not hiring women” The role of companies in nurturing gender diversity certainly calls for scrutiny After women manage to convince their families to allow them work they often encounter yet another hurdle: companies that don’t want to hire them “There is a clear case of discrimination by companies that give women a raw deal” said CMIE’s Mahesh Vyas Finally women themselves seem inclined to choose trades that are traditionally ‘women oriented’: beauty and healthcare for instance “Social norms and a lack of information often limit women’s opportunities to so-called “traditional” jobs closely linked to typical ideas of what women can and cannot do” said Clement Chauvet chief of skills and business development UNDP Sectors with fastest growth most jobs are dominated by men Unfortunately sectors with the fastest growth and maximum hiring — telecom banking and the core sectors — are dominated by men In telecom 8384% of all employees are men; 7879% in banking financial services and insurance and 7475% in core sectors like oil and gas power steel and minerals according to theIndia Skills Report 2017 Women themselves show a clear preference for trades that are traditionally ‘women oriented’: beauty and healthcare for instance said Clement Chauvet UNDP’s chief of skills and development An obvious solution is skilling The prime minister’sSkill India Missionis targeted to train over 400 million people by 2022 But there’s a mismatch between vocational skills programmes aspiration and the job market “It’s important that we make sure we skill young people to meet what industry demands” said Chauvet Moreover existing skilling programmes are simply too small to count said IGC’s Sen The bulk of skilling programmes take place as apprenticeships withustadsor in small-scale industries that are male dominated and where fathers and husbands do not like sending their girls and wives Another solution would be to make it incumbent upon companies to disclose gender diversity in hiring employees “I’m not suggesting there should be reservation But companies that function on shareholder money and bank loans should be made to disclose the gender breakup of their employees” said Vyas All women work Much of it — fetching firewood and water cooking and cleaning taking care of children and the elderly in India — is unpaid and unrecognised Very often women seek employment when there is poverty and they must contribute to the household income just to survive But when household incomes increase they might consider the option of quitting paid work Typically when economies expand and the services sector grows they get back
