Author(s):

Abstract:
Women are the backbone of families and communities. They provide care, support, and nurturing to their families and are essential to the development of children. Women also play a significant role in community building and often take on leadership roles in community organizations. Women’s economic empowerment includes women’s ability to participate equally in existing markets; their access to and control over productive resources, access to decent work, control over their own time, lives and bodies; and increased voice, agency and meaningful participation in economic decision-making at all levels from the household to international institutions. Women’s economic empowerment boosts productivity, increases economic diversification and income equality in addition to other positive development outcomes. Women’s economic empowerment boosts productivity, increases economic diversification and income equality in addition to other positive development outcomes. Education, up skilling and re-skilling over the life course – especially to keep pace with rapid technological and digital transformations affecting jobs-are critical for women’s and girl’s health and wellbeing, as well as their income-generation opportunities and participation in the formal labour market. Through their various contributions they have established the fact that they are responsible citizens who are contributing in nation development and building. Their journey from dependence to independence has proved really arduous to them. They are confronted with many different forms of challenges and restrictions. It is because of their indomitable spirit they have carved their own victories for themselves. This paper is an attempt to provide the glimpses of rural and urban women entrepreneurs’ contribution in the society thereby addressing the concerned areas which are open for their development.
