Abstract

In recent years, a record number of women have been breaking out of corporate life and embracing entrepreneurial careers partly as a redress to the discriminations they experience in paid employments. Female entrepreneurship is emerging as a potent force as more women emerge as business owners even in economic sectors that were previously thought to be the preserve of men. Women in Business: Theory, Practice and Flexible Approaches is a practical book that sets out to provide support and practical planning tools to guide both established and aspiring female entrepreneurs. These include checklists and tests, which could make the decision-making processes easier because self-employment and entrepreneurial activities are decisions that cannot be taken lightly. Women entrepreneurs are seen to be more realistic about their commercial prodigies and often make attempts to develop them within a family environment, while men gravitate more towards developing business hierarchies with defined rules and working business procedures. A number of theories, based on feminist analyses of the same, are also explored. The recognition of the capacity of women entrepreneurs in our global community is no longer a matter of debate, but a realisation that female entrepreneurship is now forming one of the major factors contributing to the development of many countries, and not just countries in transition.
