If more women did paid work, India's national income would rise dramatically
Consider this statement: “When my wife started working, our family income doubled." Or this one: “When our daughter got her job, we got a jump of 33% in our household purchasing power." Sounds familiar? Why can’t we apply it to the whole nation, and enhance gross domestic product (GDP) substantially? Why can’t more women do paid jobs, rather than toiling at home or on the fields in unpaid work?
