A study on the problems faced by women in private banking sector with special reference to Palakkad district
Banking sector is the backbone for the economic development of any country and the women had played a vital role in the smooth running of the banking sector. The Nationalization of the banking sector in 1969 was the first step which helped to reduce the gender discrimination against women in banking and insurance sectors and paved the way for women empowerment. The phenomenal growth of banks has created massive employment opportunities for the educated women of our nation. The women job seekers find job in banks more attractive and more comfortable. The present woman confronts the challenge of fulfilling her responsibilities as an employee and a home-maker. With clear distinction of work life and family life it has led to work/family imbalance. Today’s families are tending to be nuclear and the support received from extended family structure is totally missing. Both the spouses are to work to maintain a standard of living in their urban life. Our focus in this research is on the “Problems faced by working women in the Banking Sector and to know the influence of socio economic background on them in Palakkad district”.
