Sustainability has become the watchword in today's globalized world. For many years, women who constitute 50% of the world population had been sidelined from the developmental process which was utter waste of human resources. This author attempts to reexamine how better efficiency and optimum utilization of resources can lead to include women in the developmental process. In the recent decades, tremendous achievements have been made by women marking the beginning of women empowerment. In the light of this perspective, the paper will provide an analysis of the success of entrepreneurship among women. Several instances of success of women entrepreneurs world over show that sustainability can be achieved through women entrepreneurship. This research will entail a discussion in how Government of India has been framing policies to encourage women entrepreneurship across the country. Finally, the author recommends that women should be involved in the quest to attain sustainability. This paper will discuss how women are instrumental in the developmental process and in the attainment of sustainability.
