“Feminism isn’t about making women strong. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.” G.D. Anderson
“Women Entrepreneur” is the term attributed to that section of the female population which ventures out into industrial and the economic activities. Women entrepreneurs may be defined as the women who initiate, organize and operate a business enterprise.
