The terms "entrepreneur" and "entrepreneurship" are used by people interchangeably, hence the need to differentiate between an entrepreneur and an entrepreneurship. An entrepreneur is a person who starts and owns a business in the society be it a man or a woman, while entrepreneurship is defined as the driving factor that brings land, labor, capital all together in production. The development of entrepreneurial spirits among women in the society is of a great importance because the role women play in the society cannot be overemphasized. Discrimination between genders in the community tends to lead to less rapid economic growth. Women are a powerful economic driver and their inclusion in the economy could be a potion to reduce unemployment, poverty, and inequality. The aim of the paper is to fill the gap gender inequality and biasness have created identifying what the introduction and awards and incentives can contribute to making women relevant in policy and decision making, job creation, food security in the country and particularly in the province.
