Abstract

We live in a world where we consider a woman an equal personality to the man, but to what extent it is followed is unknown. Women suffer due to a lack of emotional or financial support. Nevertheless, after bearing all the sufferings, reaching their goals is the real woman empowerment. In this paper, we have highlighted the relevance of women entrepreneurs in the context of India and deduced how women could be empowered through entrepreneurship. For this, women's difficulties in bringing out their efforts and awareness about the government's policies in promoting women's entrepreneurship were studied. A questionnaire was formulated, and 200 women in the age group 16-25 years were surveyed. The data collected through our questionnaire was exhaustively cleaned and thoroughly analyzed to state the conclusion of our findings.
