Technological Development and modernization have, by and large, resulted in the retrenchment of women as they are not offered skill training to cope with new technologies. Only in information technology, are women getting entry as computer operators, call centre employees and tele-workers. Globalization has brought fast changes in technologies and environment. The important role played by women in electronics, information technology and food processing and agro industry and textiles has been crucial to the development of these sectors. They should be given comprehensive support in terms of labour legislation, social security and other support services to participate in various industrial sectors.
