Prior to 1900, in the 19400 s, 19500 s & 19600 s the women were only and only regarded as sisters, mothers, housewives and daughters. They had no role to play for the economic development of the society. They were not included in the economic activities and their contributions were also not given weight age. People who were behind the theories and concepts of development, saw men as the main elements and agents of societal development and as the bread-earners for the family while the women were only house-wives, their jobs incorporated either educating their children at home or food preparation and clean-up. In the 19th century there were very limited jobs available to women. It did not matter whether to which class the men belong but they had complete and absolute power over women. The thought was that upper- and middle-class women had to continue dependent on a man: first as a daughter and then as a wife. From the 20th century on, however, women have gained political, economic, and social power. This paper focuses on the different roles of women in the development of society and emphasizes on the significant contributions made by the women in the socio-cultural and economic development of the nation.
