Women are also overworked in the field and complete the all of the domestic work and they are sacrificing by their ambitions. Some of the women are trying to getting the self dignity and self respect through their self-employment and daily earning the more money from their occupation. The present study is analyzed the women empowerment through the street vending business. The study conducted the survey among women street vendors in Tiruchirappalli city and selected two different types of vending (flower vendors and fruits vendors) groups for Focus Group Discussion. The findings of the study are elaborated in the full paper. The government and nongovernmental organization and family members also play a crucial role for the development of women empowerment.
