  1. The share of women in regular salaried jobs in urban India declined from 54% in Q1 to 52.8% in Q2 of the current financial year, marking the lowest in six years.
  2. There was a rise in self-employed women from 39.2% to 40.3% in Q2 and a slight increase in casual workers from 6.8% to 6.9% in the same period.
  3. Despite increased education levels, there’s a disparity in female workforce participation, with education not translating into higher labor force engagement.
  4. The trend of companies calling employees back to the office post-pandemic is leading to many women choosing to stay at home and manage household chores. This abrupt shift affects their professional lives.
  5. Urban areas witness lower labor force participation rates among women compared to rural areas. The urban labor force participation rate stands at 24%, whereas rural areas show a higher rate of 30.5%.
