Access to sustainable paid employment is the key to women's empowerment and capacity to exercise control over their lives. The  Beijing Platform for Action had underlined this 15 years ago. Yet, as experts have pointed, when it comes to work women continue to suffer from the "twin deficits of capabilities and opportunities". 

How are women from all sections of Indian society coping with these deficits? How has the current recession affected their chances of earning a livelihood? What are the factors that encourage women's employment? How secure are their working conditions? To mark 100 years of International Women's Day, FES in collaboration with Women’s Feature Service (WFS) brought out a series of features that enquires into these issues from locations across India.
