Work-life balance topped the list of the most important challenges Indian women face in the workplace, with 57 percent saying it was their biggest concern, while the second biggest worry was flexible working, flagged by 42 percent of women. Contrary to data showing the pay gay in India was one of the largest in the G20, over six in 10 Indian women, or 61 percent, said they were confident they were earning the same as men doing the same job. Women in the world's second most populous country were also upbeat about having the same access to business networks as men with 53 percent agreeing they had.
But the most surprising finding in India was related to harassment. Over a quarter of Indian women, or 27 percent, said that they had been harassed at work and Indian women were more likely than any other women in the G20 to speak out. Of those harassed, 53 percent, said they would always or most of the time report this. The high number comes after a blitz in media coverage over the poor treatment of women that hit the headlines following the fatal gang-rape of a student on bus in Delhi in December 2012.
