Women should take up engaging roles in manufacturing in the pharmaceutical industry, according to Uma Chigurupati, Executive Director, Granules India Ltd.

She was speaking at a round table organised by the Employee Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO), as part of International Women’s Day Celebrations here on Tuesday.

Referring to the pharma industry, she said most women employees worked in areas such as quality assurance and marketing. ``But why not in manufacturing like what is being done in China?’’ she asked.

A better shift system with three shifts a day, ensuring them security and family support, would be of help in this regard,’’ she added.

Noted doctor and Padma award winner Manjula said better healthcare awareness should be provided to women employees to help them deal with issues like menopause. "We should be looking at mobile clinics to increase awareness about healthcare,’’ she said.
