Behind every great man lies a great woman. In some cases the woman herself may not be ideal or favorable according to society. Nevertheless, she seems to add character to the man, and influences his actions. Robertson Davies’s female character’s have done just this as they have had influenced Dunstan though his lifelong experiences.The role of woman is essential to the character development and spiritual meaning that Dunstan acquires throughout the novel Fifth Business and whether they have a positive or negative influence on him.The influential female characters in Dunstan’s life include Mrs.Ramsay, Mrs. Dempster and Diana Marfleet.
In this fast moving world, globalization has brought us a significant change in terms of product development, communication, technologies, and investment opportunities. If we look back to 50 years before, we would be able to notice the massive changes that took place and here we are today being quipped with the advancement of the technology exclusively. Globalization allows people from various places around the world to stay connected without having to travel a distance to meet the person and even purchase or sell a product from where they are. Globalization as a whole is the inclination toward grander economic, political, cultural and technological interdependence among national
Malyadri, 2012). Majority of the studies on immigrant entrepreneurship have sought to explain the causes and consequences associated with it. Questions regarding immigrant women entrepreneurs usually consist of: the reasons why immigrant women chose to become entrepreneurs, reasons why entrepreneurship at times become much common among some group of immigrant women as compared to others, the pros and cons associated with being an immigrant woman entrepreneur and the manners in which different immigrant women entrepreneurs deal with challenges they experience in their daily operations (Dr. Malyadri,
Women are expected to commit and dedicate all of their time and money to their children, which leads to them to have little or no money or time for themselves for their own well-being. This links up with the socio-cultural factor which manifests these historical beliefs and expectation. These social practices are transmitted by the vast majority and not only by men, but also by women who share the same perception of what are normal and acceptable to society (Cailliau, 2013). Due to this, women experience a lack of time, lack of appropriate, safe and accessible infrastructure and a lack of clothing to participate freely in sport or any form of physical activity (Cailliau, 2013). This has a snowball effect where women
Chapter 4 and 5 of the McPherson text focus on the third generation of nurses which occurred from 1920-1942. Chapter 5 provides better information on nursing in this inter-war era for the reasons of well-rounded observations, stylistic flow, and area of focus. While both of these chapters focus on different issues during this era, and chapter 5 goes on to discuss 1942-1968, chapter 5 presents the information in a clearer manner.
For the sake of argument let’s continue with the ‘Woman Entrepreneurship’ leading to success theory by supporting the same with the excellent evidence provided in The Athena Doctrine: How Women (and the Men Who Think Like Them) Will Rule the Future, by John Gerzema and Michael D’Antonio (published in 2013)
The empowerment of women is one of the central issues in the process of development of countries all over the world. The International Women’s Day celebrated on 8th march every year has become a day of demonstration for equal opportunity and solidarity. But the question arises how relevant is celebration of Women’s Day in view of the fact that their position in the society has not changed much. They are still treated as the ‘weaker sex’ who needs to be protected entire life-be it by her father, husband or son. The ‘New Age Women’ and the ‘Women of Substance’ in true terms are just words in books. Women constitute about half of the total population of country but they suffer from many disadvantages as compared to men in terms of literacy rates, labour participation rates earnings. Social, economic and political empowerment is the need of the day, as it is one only surest way of making women “equal partners in development”. The strategy adopted for the programmes in the areas of women development involves empowerment of women through education and awareness generation and greater emphasis on vocational training and employment so as to enable them to enter the mainstream of economic development as equal partners. In its capacity as the nodal Ministry, the Ministry of Women and Child Development seeks to promote economic empowerment of women through policies and programmes

In this world full of women, there are so few in leadership positions. Whether in education and workforce, women have made a lot of advances. However, discrimination exists in society which impacts aspects of everyday life like women being rejected in numerous opportunities and to advance in the corporate world than men. The idea of equality of gender and opportunity has been a discussion for a long time. Being a housewife and a mother is the role a woman have taken which viewed as their primary role, but women wanted to step out on their own and be independent. But, today there is a rising number of women joining the workforce today. Women are striving for equality and their place in the society. Although they have come a long way, women
Gupta, Daniel B. Turban, S. Arzu Wasti and Arjit Sikdar did a research on the role of gender stereotypes in perceptions of entrepreneurs and intentions to become an entrepreneur. In the study they wanted to examine the role of socially created gender stereotypes in entrepreneurship and their influence on men and women's entrepreneurial intentions. Data on characteristics of males, females, and entrepreneurs were collected from young adults in three countries. The hypothesis was that entrepreneurs were perceived to have predominantly masculine characteristics. Additional results revealed that although both men and women perceive entrepreneurs and females as having similar characteristics to those of males(masculine gender-role stereotype), only women also perceived entrepreneurs and females as having similar characteristics (feminine gender-role stereotype). Further, though men and women did not differ in their entrepreneurial intentions, those who perceived themselves as more similar to males(high on male gender identification) had higher entrepreneurial intentions than those who saw themselves as less similar to males(low male gender identification). No such difference was found for people who saw themselves as more or less similar to females (female gender identification). The results were consistent across the three countries. Practical implications and directions for future research are
According to Oxford Reference , gender inequity is a Social process by which people are treated differently and disadvantageously, under similar circumstances, on the basis of gender.

University students represent the future contributors to any country’s economy. While there are many precedent studies investigating the entrepreneurial intention of existing entrepreneurs, empirical studies on entrepreneurial activity amongst university students are inadequate, particularly in Malaysia. Many universities have introduced entrepreneurship education to promote the interest of under graduates to becoming future entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs play a key role in economic growth and the job creation of our own country. Entrepreneurial education has been argued as an effective way to promote and bolster the interest of entrepreneurship among university students in Malaysia. Exposures to this knowledge may instil positive attitudes towards
