Excerpt

In the emerging era of entrepreneurship, the 1990s have become the decade of women entrepreneurs. They no longer command attention because they are unusual, but because they are important. They are no longer seen as followers but as leaders, no longer viewed as confined to certain businesses, but as innovators across the full range of business and commerce. Their emergence is a worldwide phenomenon, as noted at the fifth Global Summit of Women by Sakiko Fukuda-Parr of the U.N. Development Program: “The growing economic power and influence of women-owned businesses are changing the shape of the global economy.”

Nowhere is the phenomenon more pronounced and more dramatic than in the United States where close to 8 million women-owned businesses employ one in four U.S. company workers and contribute nearly $2.3 trillion

Fifth Global Summit of Women was held in London. United Kingdom. In
July 1998. the statement made by Sakiko Fukuda-Parr was quoted in
“Women’s economic power growing quickly,” an article by Edith M. Lederer.
