Survey: Delhi is the worst place for women to work.
“Workplace to nahin, par haan travel karte time bahut problem hoti hai. Kehne ko ladies coach hai par vaha bhi kuch aisi ladies hoti hai jo aapko galat tareeke se chedti hai.” Said a working lady of Delhi.
The survey and research done by Center for Strategic and International Studies show that India has one of the world’s lowest rates of female participation in the workplace.
A report by the McKinsey Global Institute estimates that India could add up the value of 16% to its GDP if women participated at the same rate as men do.
Well, many Indian states have their own rules like “no late working hours” for women as they sometimes face harassment while commuting and also at work.
The survey consisted of 40 points and here are the 10 highest scoring states:
- Himachal Pradesh
- Andhra Pradesh
- Tamil Nadu
Interested to know where Delhi stands, well, the result will give you a shock!
So ladies, any comments on this?
