When women moves forward, the family moves the village moves and the nation moves.-Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru ABSTRACT ______________________________________________________________________ Entrepreneurship that is the human intellect in action is such a highly valued characteristic of humankind that in the absence of it nothing new could have happened. Women entrepreneurship is gaining importance in India in the wake of economic liberalization and globalization.

In comparison to other countries, the development of women entrepreneurship is very low in India, especially in rural areas. Entrepreneurship by women has been a recent concern. Women have become aware of their existence, their rights and their work situation. However, women of middle class are not too eager to alter their role for fear-of social backwardness.

Women are transforming by creating a dynamic society and inspiring the future entrepreneurs. A silent revolution is going on the right path with successful track records of innovative entrepreneurial success. It is quite evident that the number of women emerging as entrepreneurs started giving jobs to many people. Though there are many reasons for women to leave the workforce, they set new trends of leaving their jobs to be job-making entrepreneurs. Many women opt for entrepreneurship at an all-time low cost of starting a new business with the support from the government organisations, saying bye to corporate offers. The glass ceiling that once restricted a woman's professional path has paved a new route towards owning a business now. The sagacity of women helps to manage their business and balance with their family too. The freedom to put in their ideas and intuition makes women successful in their businesses. Being their own boss, large earning potential, choosing a convenient and suitable business location and working hours attract the women segment to be an entrepreneur. Nevertheless, they make their business a family asset. This paper brings out the challenges faced by multifaceted women entrepreneurs and possible outcomes for their empowerment.
