Therefore, there is a need to appreciate and acknowledge their role at all levels.
She added that, though, the number of working women is increasing day by day and greater presence of women can be seen at top echelons but our society is not satisfactorily sensitized or cognizant about the difficulties working women are facing. There are still certain barriers that they have to cross to prove themselves beneficial for working markets.
