Technological Development and modernization have by and large resulted into retrenchment of women as women are not offered skill training to cope with new technologies.
Only in the information technology, women are getting entry as computer operators, call centre employees and tele-workers.
Globalisation has brought fast changes in technologies and environment.
The important role played by women in electronics, information technology and food processing and agro industry and textiles has been crucial to the development of these sectors.
Women should be given comprehensive support in terms of labour legislation, social security and other support services to participate in various industrial sectors.
