dc.description.abstract <p>This study was aimed to develop and measure women empowerment in the Indian apparel industry. The research was designed to develop and measure the women empowerment of Indian women working in the apparel industry. Based on the Alkire-Foster methodology (Alkire & Foster, 2007), the research specifically measured the women empowerment level of women working in the Indian apparel industry and the domains that contribute to the women empowerment distributions. The results showed that the Indian female apparel workers were not empowered. Income and leadership in the community were found to contribute the most towards the empowerment of the Indian women working in the apparel industry.</p>
