Women In Business
Today nearly 60% of women 16 years of age and older are working, up from 48% in 1977.
More females own their own businesses now that at any time in our history.
Women are going into business for themselves at a much faster rate than men...they are now the dominant force in small business ownership and succeeding in industries that were once taboo for women.
Between 1997 and 2006, businesses fully owned or majority owned by women grew at nearly twice the rate for all U.S. firms (42.3% vs 23.3%).
In 2006, stats show that women owned 10.4 million private firms (accounting for 40.2% of all businesses in the U.S.).
These firms generated $1.9 trillion in annual sales and employed 12.8 million people nationwide and spent about $546 billion annually on salaries and benefits.
85% of women entrepreneurs don't believe being a woman is detrimental to their business success (32% believe it is a benefit).
