    14. 14. Madam C.J. Walker(b.1867,d.1919) Born daughter of former Luisiana slaves and orphaned at age 7, Walker developed a home made scalp lotion to stop her hair loss. She then turned her remedy into business and movement.
    15. 15. Conclusion … Women constitute around half of the total world population so is in India also. They are therefore, regarded as the better half of the society. In the traditional Indian society, a distinction was made between men’s work and women’s work, particularly that of women with family responsibility. But they are now enjoying an equal status with men and are equally contributing towards the growth of economy.
