Women constitute almost one-half of the total population and form an important section of the total labour force. But their social, economic, and political status is lower than that of men in many countries, including India. The social status of women in the society depends upon the part played by them and the social attitude of the society towards them. The status of women is intimately connected with their socio-economic contribution, which depends on opportunities for participation in economic activities. In the modern society, the role and degree of integration of women in economic development is considered as the indicator of social advancement and the women’s economic independence. In this paper the author discussed the problems and remedies of women entrepreneurs in India.
