By the beginning of this year , through the centennial of the 19th Amendment’s ratification , there were 58% of women work force in India ,and it is nearly a three-fold increase since 1920 . But since when this pandemic started it is a very hard situation for all of us but strike the woman very hard . COVID-19 pandemic has increased the rate of unemployment U.S economy . But more than a man a woman is affected by it .Many of them women lose her job due to this pandemic .They are so many women’s , whose income was running their house but now they all are unemployed .Unemployment rate of women is higher than men. IN the time of this pandemic , women loss their jobs very fast.
People in India have a belief that women cannot work more well than men, that is why they do not pay as much money to women as Men , and in many places people give more preference to male workers and leave female , thinking that male will be more superior to this work .In fact, this happens in the corporate sector that, where a woman employee is appointed and if the company gets a male worker for that place, then they remove the woman from the job without any valid reason. according to the 2018 survey , women of all races earned, on average, just 82 cents for every $1 earned by men of all races.
Any reason for this income gap the first and foremost reason is experience , as all women are not allowed to work due to this reason in many sector women’s are not allowed. The second reason:- Many women are not comfortable working after 5 pm . As They are around for the 10- 5 job only In corporate sector many times worker have to do overtime or maybe they get late to home .
Women should also get the equal opportunity as a man get she can also do all the work as a man do and should be paid fair wages.
