The Struggle of Womanhood and Entrepreneurship : This article highlights the dynamic women entrepreneurs in India and how they choose to make socially relevant and highly impactful choices.
For all those who are still very dumb about what double weighting is, I suggest you take some time to adjust to the reality of women. About women and their stories of victory, courage, tenacity, kindness, love, and most importantly, passion.
