Meanwhile, instead of confining women to their traditional job roles, society should create a vaster world where women can bring into their talents into full play. So what is needed is a mental revolution. In conclusion, in spite of its strong impact on the economy of Asian countries, globalization is rich in challenges and opportunities. Through education, communications skills, the Internet knowledge and aggressive spirit, some Asian women have risen to the challenges of globalization, and have become the role models for a new generation. But they still have to fight against social constraints and prejudices.
Introduction Throughout the history of mankind, the rank of women has been extremely pivotal in the development of the humans. At present, the progress of the nation is determined by the high positions of the women in the society in terms of the employment and the work. It is said that without the contribution of the women in the political, business, social, economic and national activities, the growth of the country will stagnate. In the past, the women were more accustomed to working in homes and taking care of children, etc. but now they are stepping into the outside world due to advances in education for women and increasing awareness.

In this way, this will certainly contribute to the overall development of the economy. Entrepreneurship among women is a recent phenomenon. In a developing country like India, a favourable socio-economic environment could help in exploiting the latent entrepreneurial talents among women. There are certain unfavourable conditions that often hinder the emergence of such entrepreneurial talents. However, despite of these situational constraints, more and more women are today entering the field of entrepreneurship in India.
Women tend to make better decisions in risky situations leading to businesses performing at a higher standard. Furthermore the education of women leads to an increase in the employment force thus possibly permitting parents to educate their children allowing for the growth of the country. (Top 10 Countries Closing Gender Gap,
Gender equality is an important driver for development and growth. Policy makers consider it as a smart economic. Greater gender equality can increase economic growth, improve sustainable development, and make institutions more representative (World development report, 2012). Development in the world has closed some gender gaps in particular countries. Women’s share of parliamentary or legislative seats and management positions increases.
I believe the presence of working women has strengthened our economic system, as Harris said “successful campaigns for the expansion of girls’ education and employment have coincided with a restructured global economy and a class/gender system that now relies heavily on young women’s labor” (6). It shocks me that women used to be expected to be a housewife and depend on their husband to provide for the family. However, just because women are more independent today does not mean they are radical feminists who cannot love, Weiss describes how women “should reject those relationships that demand or contribute to our subjugation… this does not mean…that we are not very loving” (12). Being independent is important but women still value all of the aspects of relationships and friendships, they are just now able to go and accomplish their goals without judgement. There have been so many discoveries and research done by women that have influenced modern day science that would not and could not have been done if women were not encouraged to be curious and seek higher education.
he argues that the diversity that results from such efforts improves economic performance. However, there are issues that remain unaddressed. For instance, some critics point out various policy and organizational barriers that face women work-life balance. These include workplace equality, taxation, childcare and leave, which affect women and their decisions to take up employment. Critique The author attributes the good performance of the Scandinavian countries partly to the high proportion of their women in the labor force.
Globalization has a positive effect on gender equality. This paper will therefore look at the impacts of globalization in terms of education, career and job opportunities, and lifestyle in general. The forces that make up globalization, which are the ICT, integration of the economy , and easy means of acquiring information, have worked through institutions(both formal and informal), and also markets to positively affect gender equality. Evidently, the openness of trade, and integration of ICT have resulted to an increase of jobs and stronger bonds to the worldwide markets for a huge number of women. This has increased their economic opportunities, hence an increase in their wages too,(barker, 2014).
As a long-term result, it helps boost our societal performance as a whole. To begin with, studies show that when women embrace feminine leadership, incorporating traits like empathy, team-builder and vision, they are higher favored, more efficient, and can improve organizational performance. In fact, according to a recent global survey, 66% responders preferred leaders who exhibited feminine leadership traits. But what causes these gender differences in leading styles? Researches into this issue have revealed that this is a result of the variety in confidence, bluffing, social risks and emotional and social recognition between the two genders.
