Many studies have emerged in the accounting field that explore women’s experiences in developed economies. However, little research has been undertaken to investigate the experiences and realities facing practising women accountants in India. The study offers exploratory insights into this area, (against the backdrop of the internationalisation and globalisation of accounting). The study involved seventeen women accounting practitioners from four major commercial cities in Indian: Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. The results indicate that several practitioners experienced difficulties in certain areas of practice, whereas others reported that they did not experience any barriers to advancement. A discussion concerning limitations and areas for further research are presented in the conclusion.
