Woman constitutes the family, which leads to society and Nation. Social and economic development of women is necessary for overall economic development of any society or a country. Entrepreneurship is a key element of growth and development prospects for all countries and it is most relevant to transition countries. Just a policy of wage employment will not solve the grave unemployment problem. A nation how so ever rich in material resources, cannot prosper if its resources are not put to productive use, for this purpose, energetic entrepreneurs are needed who can contribute effectively for national prosperity. The only solution is promotion and development of Entrepreneurship, as entrepreneurship aims at making an individual a job provider and not a job seeker. Entrepreneurship has been a male-dominated phenomenon from the very early age but time has changed the situation and brought women as today's most memorable and inspirational entrepreneurs. The position and status of women in any society is an index of its civilization and progress. In almost all the developed countries in the world women are putting their steps at par with the men in the field of business. Women are equally competent in running business but still lack behind in spite of women empowerment movement in our country, there are social, cultural and economic hurdles in the way of women entrepreneurship and the major problem is lack of entrepreneurial environment. In spite of having the potential and talent, women are deprived of opportunities, information and education.

Abstract


Woman constitutes the family, which leads to society and Nation. Social and economic development of women is necessary for overall economic development of any society or a country. Entrepreneurship is a key element of growth and development prospects for all countries and it is most relevant to transition countries. Just a policy of wage employment will not solve the grave unemployment problem. A nation how so ever rich in material resources, cannot prosper if its resources are not put to productive use, for this purpose, energetic entrepreneurs are needed who can contribute effectively for national prosperity. The only solution is promotion and development of Entrepreneurship, as entrepreneurship aims at making an individual a job provider and not a job seeker. Entrepreneurship has been a male-dominated phenomenon from the very early age but time has changed the situation and brought women as today's most memorable and inspirational entrepreneurs. The position and status of women in any society is an index of its civilization and progress. In almost all the developed countries in the world women are putting their steps at par with the men in the field of business. Women are equally competent in running business but still lack behind in spite of women empowerment movement in our country, there are social, cultural and economic hurdles in the way of women entrepreneurship and the major problem is lack of entrepreneurial environment. In spite of having the potential and talent, women are deprived of opportunities, information and education.
