Is this the age of women?
Far from the glitz and glamour of GES 2017 is the real India where women are either threatened to be beheaded or are placed on a pedestal; this gap must bridged first.
Discussions surrounding women empowerment and increasing their participation in the labour force has been gaining momentum, and with the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) organised jointly by India and US in Hyderabad this week, the need for more women entrepreneurs has been the talk of the town. With the Global Gender Gap Report 2017 by the World Economic Forum (WEF) placing India firmly at the 108th position out of 144 nations, the GES' focus on women was welcome. The summit's theme of 'Women First, Prosperity for All' resonated all the way from Hyderabad to the rest of the world.
