A STUDY ON PROBLEM FACED BY THE TEA PLANTATION WOMEN WORKERS IN WAYANAD DISTRICT
The relation between nation’s prosperity and women condition can be understood by the famous quote given by Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru, “You can tell the condition of a nation by looking at the status of its women.” India is a traditional country and there is diversity in religions, culture and customs. Role of the women in India mostly is household and limited to domestic issues. Female workers form the largest segment of India’s unorganized workforce. Majority of women work in unorganized sectors for low wages due to low level of skills, illiteracy, ignorance and surplus labour and thus face high level of exploitation.
