LAKSHMI, the goddess of wealth and fortune, is the closest thing Hinduism has to an economic deity. How poorly her earthly sisters in present-day India are faring. There, women are less likely to work than they are in any country in the G20, except for Saudi Arabia. They contribute one-sixth of economic output, among the lowest shares in the world and half the global average. The unrealised contribution of women is one reason India remains so poor.https://www.economist.com/leaders/2018/07/05/why-india-needs-women-to-work

Woman workforce in India is low compared to other countries and it's affecting their economic growth. So this being said, if women of India will join the wok force, it will alleviate the poverty in their country.

Do you think that it's the only answer for the country's poverty?

That points to the other problem: the lack of employment opportunities. The workforce has shifted from jobs more often done by women—especially farming, where most Indian women work but are being displaced by mechanisation. At the same time, inflexible and unreformed labour markets have hampered the rise of manufacturing and low-level services, the gateway for women in other poor countries. In neighbouring Bangladesh, whose customs are not so different from India’s, a boom in garment manufacturing has increased the number of working women by 50% since 2005. In Vietnam three-quarters of women work. But the mega-factories that boosted female employment there are largely absent in India.

Most of the rural women are employed! Men and women both work in rural India to survive. If you consider that employment.

Women must have choices. But there are consequences. India might be richer in finances but at what cost? Broken families, neglected children, stressed women, stressed home, straying men. The template is already active in America. Women work, are single mothers. Fathers flee. Children can't focus.

Double the workers but only 27% richer, in other words if they do that then they would slash wages across the board to the point you'd need both parents working, leading to a collapse of the family.

However, by making India 27%richer, we could tumble our beautiful family structure. Who knows?

A slave with the responsibility of managing the family by sacrificing her own life and ambitions. The so called family structure thrives on the oppression of women. It should collapse not pursued.
