Given a chance to be in positions of authority and responsibility, they haven't lagged behind their male counter parts. But if you take the statistics world over, not just in India, the prejudices still exist and what we get to read about are just a drop in the ocean as many get passed over when it comes to the crunch in the selection to the higher corporate positions. I am sure, if you take the number of people on top, you will hardly find the female gender in sizable nos. They are capable and yet .... Doesn't it happen even in the home front to a great extent, I mean the prejudice that I am talking about. Even where both are running, many a male wants control over the finances, though these days the trend is changing but it will take time for them to get hold of themselves fully and more important for males to acknowledge their ability. Society doesn't change overnight or even in a decade or two... It takes a long time for the acceptance to come through.

There's no doubt that women in India have taken a big leap forward in all walks of life, including business. But it must be kept in mind that these three women plus many others like them have had full support of their family members, including husbands. This is important. Business world is still, after all, a man's world.
