Click on all those links above and realize there’s only been female Comedians in India in maybe the last 10 years. And then realize this… females in India are more educated in that country’s history than they’ve ever been. Combine that with the fact that females in India have pulled out of the workforce in droves in the last 10 years as well. Read this about all that below:

The Labor Force Participation Rate for Women Is Declining.

India’s economy is growing, with an increasing GDP and a working-age population expected to climb to over 800 million people by 2050.

Despite this growth, less than one-quarter (20.3%) of women aged 15 and older participate in the labor force as of 202020 (compared to 76.0% of men).

Women account for only 19.9% of the total labor force in India.

India’s low labor force participation rate for women is due in part to restrictive cultural norms regarding women’s work, the gender wage gap, an increase in time spent for women continuing their education, and a lack of safety policies and flexible work offerings.

Recent job stagnation and high unemployment rates for women, exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic, also keep women out of the labor force.

Rural women are leaving India’s workforce at a faster rate than urban women.

Increasing women’s labor force participation by 10 percentage points could add $770 billion to India’s GDP by 2025.

So knowing all that, it makes me respect these funny gals of India that much more. Making people laugh means a whole heck of a lot. Female Comedians in India. A good thing!!!
