Abstract [en]


– The purpose of this paper is to direct attention to recent research on women's

entrepreneurship, focusing on Nordic countries.


– The paper encourages research that investigates how context, at the micro, meso and macro level, is related to women's entrepreneurship, and acknowledges that gender is socially constructed.


– This paper finds evidence that recent calls for new directions in women's entrepreneurship research are being followed, specifically with regard to how gender is done and how context is related to women's entrepreneurial activities.


– This paper assesses trends in research on women's entrepreneurship, mainly from the Nordic countries.
