Then it was paid attention to the comparative study of women’s workplace discrimination in India and in developed countries. Moreover, there were observed issues about how the problem can be solved and whether it is possible to generalise the findings of made study.

As speaker highlighted, in India the problem needs ti adopt an inclusive approach because of some reasons. These problems include socio-cultural, economic and mostly the demographic situation. The showed results of the professor’s research pointed out that Female workforce participation rate in India is among the lowest in the world (21%). Moreover, in India income is distributed in one of the most inequitable way.

All of these problems, as it was mentioned during the speech, are lead to the woman’s role in the Indian family. Suku Bhaskaran stressed in his speech that for women family is primary, while men is main source of income in the family. Woman taking care of children and that is a reason why they leave job for some time. During this missed period woman loose her potential ability to increase her income and reach some good positions in her career.

The speaker concluded that the mentioned question is more tend to the socio-cultural-economic phenomenon.
