The effect of women working in the mines is such that it makes them unable to run a home properly and carry out their normal duties because they are so tired. As result, they become very depressed. The effects are much worse on women than on men. After all, women are the cornerstone of the family, so this has a serious effect on society and the country as a whole. If women are employed in coalmines it means they will never learn how to carry out their duties as wives and mothers.
