Abstract

Women as Entrepreneurs: Contextual Factors Influencing the Growth of Female Self-employment and Entrepreneurship

The article discusses the topic of female self-employment. Based on a review of literature the study conceptually explores determinants of the rise of female entrepreneurship, with the empirical focus on German census data. The argumentation shows competing ways to interpret labour market disparities and concludes that female self-employment follows different and partially contradictory rationalities. The evaluation of empirical data indicates a coincidence of the trend towards service sector employment and the strong emergence of self-employment by women, especially regarding solo-self-employment in firms run by women without other employees. Besides the issue of service sector trends as a push-factor at the macro-level, observations at the micro-level indicate different social rationalities for engaging in self-employment, which overlap to a certain degree.
