Feminist Perspectives on the Future of Work in India

How will women fare in the future world of work in India?

This report provides an overview of dominant narratives on the future of work in India, and then contrasts these with feminist perspectives on women, work and digitization.

In looking at how women will fare in the future of work, a feminist perspective is helpful for investigating power structures and processes of marginalization that may impact vulnerable groups’ access to the work, employment conditions, rights and agency.
