Story

According to the World Economic Forum’s “Global Gender Gap Report 2017", India’s ranking has fallen by 21 places from last year. Not only are we currently far below the global average but also behind our neighbours China and Bangladesh. One of the areas where we have fared poorly is in wages and participation of women in the economy where our rank is an abysmal 139. This is not the first report to highlight the plight of our women. In fact, as per the World Bank report, we have one of the lowest workforce female participation rates, ranking 120th among 131.
To take their rightful place within Indian workforce and society at large, our women need lot more formal sector employment opportunities with better wages. And this cannot happen till formal sector employment grows in its own right.
The existing complex and conflicting regulatory cholesterol and inconsistent legislation are currently impeding formal job creation. The last three years may have set the regulatory reform agenda in motion, but to accelerate the formal job creation, we will need to see a far more concerted effort. Raising the labour force participation in formal sector requires a total revamp of the regulatory ecosystem.To take their rightful place in the workforce, women need more formal sector employment opportunities.Imizzi apparels provides job opportunity to women to work and earn a living.We also teach women in the art of tailoring.
