Challenges and Problems Faced By Women Workers in Tamilnadu

1Vinu G Vijayan, Dr.J.Mohan


In ancient India the birth of a girl child was hailed as auspicious. The persons were used to say that a home without a daughter is like a body without a soul. A daughter born to the family was compared with the advent of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and Saraswati, the goddess of fine arts. Every ceremony required the presence of women and there is a firm belief that “no home is complete without woman”. The ancient Indian civilization is known to be advanced and prosperous among the nations of the world, as the women were given a respectable status and position in the society. They were in the forefront and actively participated in the social and economic life of the country. This was followed by the deterioration due to various known causes and consequently the Indian society has been changed to “male dominated” one. This patriarchal pattern had always denied women from autonomy and freedom. The indeclinable gender bias disfigured the face of humanity, this discrimination originates well before the birth of a girl and is sustained right through her womanhood.
