'A must read for all entrepreneurship scholars because it helps us
to understand and appreciate the real and many roles of women
entrepreneurs, their relevance and importance to societies across
the World, as well as the challenges and issues women entrepreneurs
can face. An exciting and interesting read which presents us with
critical questions for the future - thank you.' - Sarah Jack,
Lancaster University Management School, UK Taking a fresh look at
how performance is defined by examining the institutional power
structures and policies, eminent scholars herein explore ways to
overcome constrained performance and encourage women?s
entrepreneurial activities through a variety of methodological
approaches and geographical contexts. Significantly, this book adds
a critical perspective to defining ?success? and ?performance?,
shattering misconceptions of underperformance in women-owned
enterprises. The contributing authors raise questions on the
limiting concept of the ?entrepreneur? and have valuable insights
into policies to facilitate female entrepreneurs. Instead of taking
a one-sided and narrow approach with regards to understanding the
entrepreneurship performance phenomenon, this book argues that
future researchers should take a fresh look at business
performance, considering structural constraints, definitions of
success and other socio-political factors. Scholars in the fields
of entrepreneurship, gender studies, and institutional theory, as
well as those who have a general interest in critical research,
will benefit from this progressive step in entrepreneurship
research. Contributors include: R. Aidis, A. Akdeniz, H. Baiya, M.
