"Women and work at construction sites in India. The progressive and modern India looks like ‘an open-air workshop’. In big cities and touristic centers they build infrastructure, new buildings, offices, hotels, bridges, highways and the dust, that creeps everywhere so stubbornly, is the subtle and invisible thread uniting the lives and destinies of many Indian women working in the construction industry. In a recent report on women's work it turned out that the majority (over 40%) work in agriculture, but in recent years it is noted that the number of women employed in the construction industry increased exponentially."
