The Working Women’s Network is an initiative to provide a definition to working woman in India. In spite of the huge contribution to the country’s economy working women in India are lesser recognised as a work force. With approximately 26% of rural workforce and 13% of urban workforce women are an estimated 30% of all economically active individuals in India.
The Working Women’s Network intends to create a constituency of this collective force. The Network aims to:
The wowonet is a place for women to come together and make a difference to their own lives, and one another’s. As the network grows our collective intellect and skills grow. As a group we target our problems, our concerns. As our group we share and celebrate our success and our existence. As a group we raise our voice, demand our right to be heard and our opinions to matter. We come together to celebrate, advocate, learn, teach, grow and progress.
The network team will take multiple initiatives to reach our goal of economic independence for all women in the form of advocacy programmes, social campaigns, debates and dialogues.
