Abstract:
Women are generally treated as weak and confined to home making with nothing to do with business. The topic of women in entrepreneurship has been largely neglected both in society in general and in the social sciences. Not only have women lower participation rates in entrepreneurship than men but they also generally choose to start and manage firms in different industries than men tend to do. The transition from homemaker to sophisticated business woman is not that easy. But this picture is changing. In Modern India, more and more women are taking up entrepreneurial activity especially in micro, small and medium scale enterprises. Women across India are showing an interest to be economically independent. The Indian women are no more treated as beautiful showpieces. They have carved a niche for themselves in the male dominated world. Indian women well manage both burden of work in household front and meeting the deadlines at the work place. Gender equality and economic development go hand in hand. Though the entrepreneurial process is the same for men and women, there are however, in practice, many problems faced by women, which are of different dimensions and magnitudes, which prevent them from realizing their full potential as entrepreneurs. The primary objective of this paper is to throw light on the find out the status of women entrepreneurs, problems and challenges faced by women entrepreneurs in India, the remedial measures to be taken to solve the problems and the prospects of Indian Women Entrepreneurs.
