Abstrakty
Niniejsza praca zajmuje się jednym z najważniejszych zjawisk ekonomicznych i społecznych na świecie - zjawiskiem wzrostu przedsiębiorczości kobiet. Przedsiębiorczość kobiet należy analizować jako oddzielną dyscyplinę wiedzy z dwóch głównych powodów: (a). Przedsiębiorczość kobiet jest ważnym źródłem wzrostu gospodarczego w zakresie tworzenia nowych miejsc pracy oraz, z powodu odmienności genetycznej, kobiety znajdują inne rozwiązania problemów biznesowych i tych związanych z zarządzaniem;(b). Przedsiębiorczość kobiet jest tematem zaniedbywanym w badaniach biznesowych. Chociaż nieprędko zrównamy szanse mężczyzn i kobiet na polu przedsiębiorczości, postęp w tej dziedzinie można przyspieszyć lepiej rozumiejąc wpływ przedsiębiorczości kobiet na społeczeństwo i jego wkład we wzrost gospodarczy. Niniejsza praca zajmuje się rosnącą przedsiębiorczością kobiet zarówno w krajach rozwiniętych jak i rozwijających się, bada podstawowe czynniki motywacyjne i inne wpływające na przedsiębiorczość kobiet, omawia główne przeszkody z jakimi muszą zmierzyć się przedsiębiorcze kobiety i wreszcie proponuje pewne rekomendacje dla decydentów mające na celu zachęcanie i wspieranie tej aktywności.

This study aims to discuss one of the most significant economic and social developments in the world - the rise of the female entrepreneurship phenomenon. Women entrepreneurship needs to be studied as a separate field for two main reasons: (a). Female 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). Female 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 female entrepreneurship on society and its contribution to economic growth. This study addresses the growth in female entrepreneurship in the developed and developing countries, explores primary motivational and other factors that influence female entrepreneurship, reviews the main obstacles facing the female entrepreneur, and finally makes recommendations to policy-makers to encourage and support such activity.
