Abstract

Woman comprises almost 50% of the world population. In the modern age women are equally involved with their counterpart in the corporate world also. Women are enjoying their dignity, but when the situation comes for their family or giving birth to their young ones, corporate sector has to bear the cost of maternity leave. In such cases, due to the burden on the corporate houses or their family problems, women are not able to rejoin their work. In such condition, it may be the push factor that they are forced to start their own business or venture with the limited funds. There are lots of responsibilities to be borne by women. In this paper we will discuss the aspect of maternity leave that further motivated them for venturing a new business and overcome the challenges to get a new identity in the society.
