Women's Social Protection

Social security for women in India, despite the existence of multiple Government sponsored schemes, is an issue that has not yet been tackled efficiently as these schemes still fail to reach the most marginalized women in society. Due to a series of systemic failures, women’s lives and work are adversely impacted in both the productive and reproductive domains.
