About this Item

Contents Prologue. 1. Introduction. 2. Working women in the informal sector the district profile. 3. Women as domestic workers. 4. Female labour participation in Bidi rolling. 5. A comparative study of female domestic and Bidi workers. 6. Concluding remarks and suggestions. Bibliography. Appendix. Informal sector is an important feature of the most of the developing nations of Africa Latin America and Asia. Women constitute a bulk in the large informal sector of the developing world. Naturally they represent the bulk of the informal sector labour supply. They work at a low wage rate less than what received by the male workers for the same work. Their job is insecure and thus unstable. They are generally restricted to low productivity and ill paid informal sector employment and experience higher dependency burdens. They are more likely to be poor and malnourished and less likely to get formal education health care or clean water and sanitation. This book gives an exposition of women engaged in informal sector activities. Two case studies of women workers engaged in domestic chores and bidi rolling activities have been made. A comparative study of female domestic and bidi workers has also been undertaken to attempt an economic model for valuation of domestic and bidi workers. 175 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 56925
