While this is a win-win for women entrepreneurs in the states, closer to home more needs to be done. Although Falguni Nair, the founder of Nykaa, has broken the mythical glass ceiling and become a self-made billionaire, the Indian economy will be 10 times better and more indigenous women will become millionaires and billionaires. The more the better.
