Abstract

Among the unorganized sector workers in the full-time, women domestic workers are considered as the most neglected people. In India domestic work is the oldest part-time occupation for the women in India. Male chauvinism has been playing a vital role from the period of king's rule. Women were not allowed to go for education and job placement in the organizations. They were asked to remain in the house and to do the household work. At present the work culture has been changed due to the social changes, new economic policies, caste polarization, degradation and depletion of natural resources, loss of traditional culture and institution. All these factors have increased the poverty level of the people. Especially they have made a great impact on women. Today people migrate from rural areas to urban due to globalization and privatization. Job opportunities are available only in town and the cities. Due to illiteracy, poverty, broken family, divorced families, sexual violence, loss of husband, alcoholic partners and parents, dowry, women take up domestic work.
