The women of the 21st century have risen above every trite remark and proved to be successful in every field, including science and technology. According to the “India’s Tech Industry: Women For The Techade” NASSCOM report, women constitute 35 percent of India’s technology industry.

However, the percentage of women in leadership positions in tech companies is still low. As per 451 research report, Women in Tech: India Leads the Way, the Indian corporate ecosystem saw only 11% representation of women in senior leadership roles, 38% in junior levels, and 20% in mid-level roles

In the app development industry as well, the vast majority of developers are male. However, a few hard-core women have dared to shatter the stereotypes and developed interesting apps. 

Here is a list of 4 apps developed by women:

Conclusion

The percentage of women in tech is much larger around the globe compared to India, yet the efforts to empower women in India are surely showing results.

This can also be attributed to better education in technology for women in the last decade. Young girls in India comprise 30 percent of engineering students which is among the highest in the world and more than the developed nations like the US, UK, Germany, and France as per the All India Survey on Higher Education (AISHE).

Thanks to the policy reforms for the additional push for diversity, there is definitely an upward trend for women in tech. Hopefully, women like Falguni Nayar, Sairee Chahal, Jo Aggarwal, and Ankita Kulkarni Purani will continue to inspire others and improve the conditions of women in the ecosystem.
