The thought of writing about women in business sector and their status in it hasn’t arisen only due to the fact that they are less in number in this field, rather from the fact that despite overall magnificent capacities, they are still at the ignorant considerations in this male dominating world and the best possible hurdles are always imposed against them. Not only in the economic field itself, rather do they not even find their world equal to men in other parts of life also. Due to such social system only, it is bit difficult for women to elevate themselves in the socio-economic life. There is a necessity to bring gender equality at the socio-economic front. Gender equality is all about smart economics, as it can have a huge impact on productivity and economic efficiency. It is good to say that the aspiring women must be especially competent and well-educated. As, there are still many stereotypes and prejudices to overcome in this male-dominating sector. women need to learn new behavior for dealing with interpersonal conflicts and to develop leadership and team-building skills. Hence, we need to instill the optimism and productive thought structure into the socialization process, so that women with better and bright future can be raised to develop the economy at a faster rate.
