Extract: Globalisation has two sides, like a coin. One side is making the world a better place whereas the other side is not. In this paper, the core focus would be on how Globalisation has affected women in third world countries with an Indian perspective. This paper will introduce the topic by highlighting the difficulty faced by Indian women in having equal status to men and by also underlining how the developed countries have influenced the mindset of Indian families towards women rights. This paper’s scope is restricted to two aspects. The first focuses to assess the affect through technological advancement which has helped women to uplift themselves and, the second part focuses on the involvement of industries i.e., the Construction and the Textile Industries respectively and if the globalised world of the West i.e. The American and European world liberalized or exploited women of third world countries by converting them into their virtual colonies. Women provide cheaper labor than men because of which both the construction business and the textile market makes women do the most work for almost no wage with an abundance of unethical labor practices for women. Both Industries are one of the largest exploiters of women under the guise of liberators by providing women with employment. The author has conducted a small survey of about 100* people of ages 15 and above and asked them some questions regarding the research topic. This survey will be used as a reference throughout the paper along with other information through various articles to create an understanding of the impact of globalization with respect to technology and job opportunities to women in construction and textile industry.
