In India since historic times the socio- economic status of women has been a matter of great discussion. But with the passage of time people began to understand that women play a very vital role in the overall development of society, family, state as well as country. In the case of Assam, as we know Assam is well known for quality of tea. Assam is considered as the world's largest tea growing region. So, most of the workers are engaged in tea-estate as formal, semiformal, and in informal sector. In Assam women workers are the major labour source in various tea gardens of Assam. Women plays a significant role in the establishment of tea industry in the region. In this paper an attempt has been made to examine the socio- economic states of tea garden women and to suggest effective measures for the improvement of socio- economic condition of the women of the tea garden.
