Abstract: In India, a woman is considered and connected mainly with household. In well-off families, with the help of servants, women are spared from household works by providing servants. Educated mothers are expected to take care of the children’s’ education and working women need a support to be in time. Thus women’s role in the smooth functioning and management of the household cannot be overlooked. At this point, it is important to note that it is the existence of servants within the household that allow the housewife or working women to perform well. Generally Domestic work includes cleaning, mopping, sweeping, washing, cleaning vessels, clearing the table after meal, cooking maintaining garden, taking the child to school as well as from school to house and other works. Neither House wife nor working women need a support to do the household. They employ domestic workers. This paper deals with the socio economic status of women Domestic workers in puduvayal, Sivaganga District.
