Abstract

Because of the perceived nature of work and the common notion that it is a large male-dominated industry, the Indian construction industry has inherent gender biases. Females have been under-represented in all the discipline and occupation of construction. Current literature describe the difficulties and issues faced by women working in the construction industry. Women construction workers are caught in a late entry process, are unqualified, earn low wages, and are therefore casualized. The study seeks to describe the broad gender gap in the fields of employment, skill development, upward mobility, and the importance to the family of women's earnings. Although the industry is subject to many labor laws, none of them has been able to guarantee the fundamental right of construction workers to safe working and living conditions. The only way forward seems to be required changes to the Building and Other Building Workers Act, its improved enforcement, and market-based processes where demand for higher skill levels and better services could create conditions for combating gender discrimination and inhuman exploitation in the construction industry.
