In the modern world, men are no longer the sole contributor to the vastly growing economy of a country. Women too have stood their ground and have given their fair share when it comes to businesses. In fact, a number of women have been successful in building and running their own firms despite the hardships they have to endure.
It is true however that starting a business, regardless of type, from scratch is more than challenging, which is why it is mostly the men who were known to start a business. But the social norms have shifted and women are now in equal ground with men when it comes to succeeding in this line of work. Knowing the statistics and facts of those women who have succeeded in business would certainly surprise you.
Understanding how these new breed of women entrepreneurs demolished the old societal norm will immensely impact how we further grow and strive for the betterment of society and ourselves.
