The garment making is a labour – intensive industry and the majority contribution of the workforce in this sector constitutes employment of women in the garment Industry. Women employees play a very important role in the organization. Women in the work force earning wages or salary are part of a social economic development in much the same way as the growth of paid employment for men, but women have been facing many challenges of inequality in the work place. Stress is the harmful physical and emotional response that occurs when there is a poor match between job demands and the capabilities, resources, or needs of the worker. The combination of high demands in a job and a low amount of control over the situation can lead to stress. Women Empowerment is the way or a social action in which women progress and recreate what is to be done in a circumstance that they were previously denied. It is the process that creates power in individuals over their own lives, society, and in their communities.
