Women entrepreneurship has shown an upward trend globally. According to a study conducted by the Global Entrepreneurship Research Association, an estimated 163 million women were starting or running new businesses in 74 economies around the world in 2016. In addition, an estimated 111 million were running established businesses globally (Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) 2016/2017 Report on Women’s Entrepreneurship).” Till 2018, women mark their presence in every un-conventional career field. Women entrepreneurs are significantly contributing in the economy of the country. Earlier women entrepreneurs faced many hurdles which limit their potentials but now women across the globe have overcome all challenges and have magnificently proved themselves in all spheres of life including the most cumbersome world of entrepreneurship which was earlier dominated by the men. Drucker said that Indian women are the best managers because since their childhood they learned how to take responsibilities and how to handle the adverse situations. Women across India are showing more interest in entrepreneurship because they want to be economically independent and have control over their lives. This paper entails the success stories of woman entrepreneurs of Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh, who have created for themselves an identity and earned respect through their entrepreneurial skills and became an idol in the eyes of the society.
