21st century had witnessed changes in many domains and one that is seen emerging at rapid pace is the women entrepreneurship that is gaining importance. Women in recent years have, undoubtedly, proved themselves in all walks of life and have changed the demographic characteristics of business and economic growth of the country. However, the question of glass ceiling which is seen as preventing women and minorities from rising to positions of power and responsibility is still considered as a major hurdle in the development of women as entrepreneurs. The paper however endeavors to challenge the existing perception of the on-going belief that glass ceiling is still viewed as a major constraint responsible for climbing the ladder of success. The paper also tries to determine the effect of glass ceiling among women entrepreneurs and also tries to find out the fact that Glass ceiling is a myth or a reality based on the views of various successful women entrepreneur. Research methodology is based on secondary data. After analyzing the views of the successful women entrepreneur it has been found out that one of the common attribute of all these women is their indomitable spirit and the will power to succeed in spirit of odds. Based on findings it has been suggested that for society to evolve and to be healthy, it needs to encourage women to fulfill their potentials as entrepreneurs and professionals. They are the true role models for a future generation of women leaders, and it has been proved that there exists no glass ceiling for the capable ones. It’s an instinct to stand out, and that needs to be driven.
