Perceptions of female entrepreneurship in Russia
2000 (English)Report (Other academic)
This paper aims at contributing to our rudimentary knowledge on entrepreneurship in postsocialistic countries, and more specifically investigates the conditions prevailing in Russia for female entrepreneurs starting privately owned and managed ventures. Building on both previous research in entrepreneurship and gender-based research, the paper applies theoretical frameworks emerging from research in Western economies on data depicting the present situation in post-socialistic Russia. Utilizing quantitative data (survey data from 670 respondents) as well as qualitative data (interviews with two focus groups of newly established and potential female entrepreneurs), the study investigates general attitudes towards women in business and the specific opportunities and problems female entrepreneurs are facing in today's Russia. The study concludes by comparing the situation for female entrepreneurs in Russia to women doing business in the former Western Hemisphere.
