Dr. Annapurna Dixit

Abstract :

 In the present paper an attempt has been made to analyse the gender discrimination with women entrepreneurs in informal sector in the Lucknow city. The study has been conducted in Lucknow which is capital of Uttar Pradesh as it is one of the oldest cities of Uttar Pradesh and blessed with good basic infrastructural facilities and resources. Data has been collected from women entrepreneurs in the informal sector on the basis of well developed questionnaire. Women entrepreneurs faced discrimination in their education life also. The women entrepreneurs, who were graduate and above, did not face any kind of domestic violence during the last twelve months. Analysis reveals the fact that education has significant role in reducing domestic violence against women. The basic problem faced by women entrepreneurs was lack of funds. Most of the women entrepreneurs are of the opinion that because of lack of training, they are not able to survive in the market. Improper location and inadequate infrastructure facilities are the hurdles in the way of development of women entrepreneurship which is also responsible for the exploitation of the women entrepreneurs in informal sector.
