There are more than 50 million freelancers in the world among which about 70% are females. Freelancing is best career choice for women because of work from home situation available all the time. Females from conservative backgrounds can also make a successful career as freelancers by working from home. It is not that easy for a girl to work outside her home in an office or in the market because of male dominant society specially in Asian countries.
The traditional working structure is often very stressful for a women so more & more females are considering to work remotely. This will also give them freedom not to work 40 hours a week or attend hard schedule meetings of routine job environment.

Many companies now a days prefer to hire female freelancers specially for writing or book keeping jobs.
We cannot say freelancing is an easy cake for females because you have to survive in dry spells & uncertainty can be exhausting but it is yet appealing to them because of the freedom that comes with being freelancer. No matter how good you are at what you do, there comes a time when you need help & women are more easy to ask for help than man & this also help them to learn new skills very quickly.
