An Overview of Women Entrepreneurs in Indian Perspective

ABSTRACT

Gender is a socially constructed difference between men and women but it is different from sex, which is the biological difference between them. Women as such she had been subjected to many discrimination and deprivation from different angles of the society. Discrimination may lead to deprivation and deprivation may facilitate discrimination against a person. In fact gender discrimination starts even before birth by sex determination techniques. Women in India have struggled to establish an identity and create a space for themselves at their workplace, especially in terms of leadership. Traditional cultural values continue to have a strong impact in the Indian society and to a large extent adversely affect the entrepreneurial spirit of the women community. The attitude towards a women entering business is negative .If she succeeds it is a chance; if she fails it is considered natural. There is a lack of self worth and difficulties in being accepted as a boss in the male dominated world. This paper focuses on the various aspects of gender discrimination women entrepreneurs had to face in their working environment.
