Women account for more than fifty percent of the total workforce of the tea plantation industry in Assam. Yet they remain marginalized in many aspects of the tea industry.This study attempts to analyze the current state of tea industry in Assam against the backdrop of sexual division of labor, role of patriarchy, trade unions, sexual abuses and subordination of women in tea estates. It examines the intersectionality of gender and class and workplace inequalities and the industrial relations scenario in the tea estates. Negligible role of the State and low social welfare activities can be identified as one of the major causes of pathetic work conditions, especially of the health hazards of women workers.
