Abstract: “When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.”– Audre Lorde. Women Empowerment refers to the creation of an environment for women where they can make decisions of their own for their personal benefits as well as for the society. It is the empowerment of women which helps them to take their own decisions by breaking all personal limitations of the society and family. According to the provisions of the Constitution of India, it is a legal point to grant equality to women in the society in all spheres just like male. The Department of Women and Child Development functions well in this field, for the proper development of the women and child in India. Women are given a top place in India from the ancient time however they were not given empowerment to participate in all areas. The study focuses on the importance of women empowerment in the country and the challenges faced by women entrepreneurs. Again it gives some suggestions to the women entrepreneurs to face the different challenges.
