A podcast on women and work.
Since 2005, the percentage of Indian women in paid work has dropped from 35% to less than 24%, but no one is talking about why. Until we did, and Women in Labour was born (pun intended).
A comedic take on a serious issue, Women In Labour explores a veritable feast of topics related to women, work, family, power, and everything in between. Why do Indian women do the most unpaid work in the world? Why do we preface our work emails with “I was just wondering...”? Why do we still watch movies that stereotype women's roles? And the big one—what’s keeping us away from India's workplaces?
Join co-hosts Aditi Mittal and Christina MacGillivray on a freewheeling ride with a roster of amazing guests—from cricket presenters to authors to economists—in an attempt to answer all these questions, and more.
