This initiative needs to be nurtured with an open mind and a practical approach. Women’s cricket has to be understood on its own merit, independent of Men’s cricket performance. Importantly, efforts have to be made for general acceptance amongst public for the sport played by women who roughly constitute 50% of the population.

COWE’s formed in 2004, has a goal is to motivate females to inculcate entrepreneurship culture. This platform would boost the confidence of women and help them to attain an edge for their entrepreneur’s careers. Women in India manage a vast majority of household spending and are better at building lasting relationships which are prerequisites for entrepreneurs today.
