The role of women within the entrepreneurial environment is of significant importance. The women entrepreneurship has to be studied separately for two reasons. The first being that women entrepreneurs have emerged as an untapped source of economic growth during the last decade. They not only create jobs for themselves and others but also provide society with different solutions to management, organisation and business problems as well as to the exploitation of entrepreneurial opportunities. Women Community though equal men in population, it is the subject of concern to note that, yet in this modern sophisticated world, she is treated as the second citizen or subordinate to men. Though various efforts are being made to improve the status of women, women folk have not taken their maximum use and remain still backward. In almost all countries, the Governments are providing special provisions for women’s development and efforts are being made to extract maximum use of women’s talent. Women folk have not taken the proper use of the special provisions and facilities available for them in the business field. We find lack of efficient women entrepreneurs. It is the time now to awake the ladies community towards the opportunities available for them to get their talent useful and serve the society, which can be a cause for more rapid growth of the nation. As now, in this modern world everywhere the cost of living has increased, it becomes necessary for women to undertake economic activity and support their families. Now the attitude of the society has also changed and working women is not seen with suspicious eyes like earlier. She is more liberated now and the modern woman leads a very happy and peaceful family life with her husband and family’s support in her economic activity. In the present paper an attempt has been made to study role, Trends, Problems faced by women entrepreneurs and also the position of women Entrepreneurs in Jammu and Kashmir.
