Down to Earth

Not paid their due


On the Internatio­nal Women's Day on March 8, Down To Earth compiled a gallery of women working in India's unorganise­d sector. Most women who work in the sector are not paid for their labour. This shift from paid to unpaid work is a dispiritin­g one, because it is also typically associated with women's loss of agency and bargaining power within the family. It is time that Indian policy makers gave women the dues they are entitled to.
