There are numerous challenges which are faced by working women at a workplace on all the positional levels. The women who are working at ministerial level, they generally face the problem of harsh treatment, extended working hours, less number of leaves/holidays, low wages and insecurity because generally at ministerial level most of the employees are men. At the middle level women faces the challenges in terms of insecurity which is generally related to kind of output required which they are not able to deliver due to diverse commitments towards family and society. At the higher level, women face the challenges related to tasks, accomplishments, greater responsibilities towards the organization and their flexible working hours. In all the three levels of women, there are few factors which enhance their challenges of working at a particular workplace like environmental effect, socio-cultural effect, and senior-subordinate relationship (if there is gender difference between senior and subordinate). The paper will be based on both primary and secondary data through which the three major areas that are issues, impact and remedial measures will be analyzed and suggestions will be given to reduce the challenges and to provide the working women three “S” i.e. Strength, safety and Security.
