WOMEN IN THE ECONOMY

“Her food, clothing, ornament, luxuries bear no relation to her power to produce wealth, to her service in the house or her motherhood,” This quote by Charlotte Gilman tells us that women depend on men for economic stability. The man takes care of the woman financially while she remains isolated from society spending time at home. Well, that was the past.

Women have advanced exponentially to the point where society is bound to realise women’s rights and gender equality. Increasing the level of education of women will lead to a better economy. When more women work, economies grow for the reason that it boosts productivity and increases economic diversification. Globally, women are less likely to do labour work and would much rather have a job and earn their own money.


Women in rural India, despite suffering from problems related to health and lack of education, engage themselves in agricultural activities, run small shops, sell handicraft products and thus generate additional income for the family.

Gone are the days when women were considered only household entities. “Woman is the companion of man, gifted with equal mental capacity” This quote by Mahatma Gandhi informs women all over the world that there are issues that need to be sorted. It makes us understand that gender equality is necessary for a better society. No matter the gender, there should be equal pay and equal rights for every citizen.

Women feel like they lack power, but they too have a voice that needs to be heard. They are just as powerful as men and they play an essential role in growing the economy. Despite the drawbacks that still prevail in society, women have found a way to adapt and improve their conditions. They no longer feel obligated to hide their resentment towards unjust treatment and suppression. Today, although they enjoy many rights and freedoms, there is still a long way to go.

Together, we can strive to create a better world and a healthy environment for the coming generations.
