Women have played a pivotal role towards the growth of economy. The economic development goes beyond growth as an indicator of development; it involves other indicators which directly addresses the issue of welfare and development in the society. Though women constitute approximately half of the total world population their share in the recognition of economic development is deplorably low; women have always been a part of the survival of any community for the welfare of the family and society as a whole. Research suggests that, increase in economic leadership of women results in highly beneficial performance in all dimensions. However, their roles are not recognized at par with men in the society. Undoubtedly, there has been a growing recognition of the primary talents, women’s leadership capacity and their roles towards economic development yet their contribution is frequently overlooked. Women enjoy significant freedom and play a vital role in family and community life though the Naga society is patriarchal in nature. Women have a greater range of responsibilities, from domestic work to various agricultural activities. Gender disparity measures reveal that women's work frontier is expanding as they take over the economic work which was traditionally designated to men. The paper aims to highlight the contribution of Naga women towards economic development; it provides an overview of key challenges and outlines potential solutions to increase the recognition of Naga women’s roles in economic development. The study is primarily based on secondary data.

Keywords : Women, Naga Women, economic development, women entrepreneurs.
