Socio-Cultural Norms Supporting Entrepreneurship Do Not Impact Female Self-Employment

Because Entrepreneurship started as a masculine discipline. It is assumed that Socio-cultural norms supporting Entrepreneurship are masculine which could explain the low rate in female self-employment. To investigate these assumptions held about female self-employment, Zarrouk and co. used the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor and found that in OECD countries (2000-2014), socio-cultural norms supporting Entrepreneurship are more appropriate for men than women. Yet, they do not have a significant impact on female self-employment. As this assumption has been challenged, we continue investigating other contexts.
