This attention has been two fold. One has been the overall integration of women in development of the economic growth of the nation while the other has been the issued of security in status and allocation of resources for their growth and partnership.

Finally this paper also proposes research on values women hold, and the changing profile if young women, which would provide insights into the coming generation of women managers in India.
