The workshop aims to understand the multiple facets of ‘women’s’ paid and unpaid work, gendered occupational segregation, lack of upward mobility within the existing patterns of work and social security benefits in the informal sectors of employment in India with a special reference to Delhi. The workshop will focus on the barriers to women's economic empowerment and offer concrete suggestions to address these by working towards engendering existing policies and programmes.
