The nature has created male & female to maintain the balance. It all depends on the socio economical condition of a family whether women should work night shifts in addition to regular chorus of household duties. As far as the safety factor is concerned, it is on the scale of fifty-fifty. One takes proper care of self, nothing wrong can happen.

Night shift is not good for Indians which will affect their metabolism. As far as security reasons are concerned, eventhough we claim that there is no gender bias, it would be better for the girls to say no to night shifts.. but in that case we need women folk to run the hospitality industry, hospitals etc

Damage to health, intelligence and relationships. Poor sleeping habits have also been linked to mental health problems, cancer, common colds, depression, diabetes, obesity and strokes. Of all the aspects of modern day corporates, night shift is the most debated. Although night shifts come with rosy monetary benefits, they pose a host of problems and dangers.

While health is a critical concern of those working in the night shifts, women are more vulnerable. Women should be exempt from working nights. Savita Suresh Nair

Today's time both men and women have equal rights. So there is no problem if they work at night but there should be a good working environment and they need to be more careful during night shifts.

Ensuring a working womans safety is the Company's responsibility and not only up to her "character" or behavior. Indian men need to be more broad minded and act professionally at the work place . Working night shifts is often a professional commitment which may not entirely be because of economic necessity.

I see lots of patronizing replies here from mostly male writers ...
Let a woman decide if she wants to work night shifts.
