Globalisation is a wonderful but ambiguous and confusing term which have a multi-dimensional phenomenon. The word “Globalisation” has been in use since the 1960s in the Western World and from 1990 in India. The development of a country economically depends highly on the entire population. However, society’s limitations and male dominance restrict women from participating in the workforce. The trend of globalisation around the world has led to many structural changes in agriculture, service and other sectors, increasing women’s workforce participation in India. Against this background, this paper attempt to study the impact of globalisation on the women workforce of India. It focuses on the development of women’s workforce participation, the history of the participation status of women till the present time, the impact on their participation, the legal provision related to protection etc. This paper presents the Census Data of India from the year 1971 to 2011 and compares it on the bases of literacy rate and participation in rural and urban areas. Paper also provides the periodic labour force survey of 2021-22 India.
