This paper sheds light on the importance of entrepreneurship phenomenon and the role of SMEs in entrepreneurship. Based on the existing body of knowledge, it aims at highlighting the need to promulgate neglected women entrepreneurship phenomenon in Malaysia. For this, it glances through the literature regarding SMEs and entrepreneurship developments around the world and in Malaysia. It also presents the role casted by the Malaysian government in fostering entrepreneurship through promoting and inculcating SMEs, providing a big thrust to economy through their innovation. However, it is described that despite of all its developments a yet to be explored phenomenon of women entrepreneurship is still standing silently in the queue waiting for its turn to be acknowledged fully. It is therefore suggested to invite more researches on women entrepreneurship specifically in Malaysia to explore its importance and as such draw attention of policy makers and stakeholders to incubate and flourish this phenomenon.
