Abstract

Report on the rate of business owenership by women and men in the UK. Early studies concentrated on descriptive accounts of the characteristics and motivations of women in business and their experiences of business ownership, particularly at start-up. These two themes still dominate the literature. However, greater methodological sophistication has developed, as have a number of more specialist themes. These specialist themes include: gender differences regarding management of the business, particularly with regard to finance, business networks, and performance.
