This study aims to discuss one of the most significant economic and social developments in the world - the rise of the woman entrepreneurship phenomenon. Women entrepreneurship needs to be studied as a separate field for two main reasons: (a). Woman entrepreneurship is an important source of economic growth in creating new jobs and by being genetically different: women provide different solutions to management and business issues; (b). Woman entrepreneurship has been neglected, particularly in business research.

Although equal opportunity for men and women in the entrepreneurial field is not a reality in the short range, the progress towards its achievement could be facilitated by better understanding of the impact of woman entrepreneurship on society and its contribution to economic growth.
