With the growing globalization and liberalization of the economy as well as increased privatization of services women as a whole have been left behind. Mainstreaming of women into the new and emerging areas of growth is necessary. This will require their training and skill upgradation in emerging trades encouraging them to take up vocational training and employment in the boom sectors. This will also require women to migrate to cities and metros for work. Hence provision of safe housing and other gender-friendly facilities at work will need to be provided.
