A recent article by The Economic Times covered a women’s leadership panel, “Create, nurture and transform: the better half,” that took place at the Global Business Summit in New Delhi last month. One of the women who spoke on the panel, Textile Minister Smriti Irani, addressed the importance of empowering women in India to be entrepreneurs. Irani noted,
“Women are the only ones large-hearted enough to make family the fulcrum of their personal journey, and they could succeed…[if] legally and economically empowered.”
Several other key takeaways from the panel include,
- Social media can be used as a tool to further female entrepreneurship in India. It can serve as a platform to raise awareness about issues, like the wage gap between men and women, in the country.
- The journey to gender equality could be furthered through the financial independence of Indian women.
- Women would more frequently use laws put in place to help them, if they were psychologically motivated and empowered to.
