Women constitute nearly one-half of the present population of the country. They are expected, like their counterparts in developed countries, to play significant role in the development and progress of the national economy. Unfortunately very little attention has been paid on womens studies. As a social group the middle class working women is an emerging phenomenon. The study conducted by the author and as outlined in the present volume highlights the problem of working middle class urban women in historical perspective. After analysing in detail the pattern and development of working women as a social group, the author highlights their problem of maintaining and also looking after their place of work. In the framework of these broad parameters, the author analyses the government policies and programmes, locates the bottlenecks in policies and finally provides some meaningful suggestions which may help the administrators. The book is likely to prove highly useful to the students of urban sociology, academicians, administrators, policy planners and also general readers.
