Like most issues under the banner of gender inequality, the State of Women Entrepreneurship claims that things are not great, but getting better. You may not feel it on a daily basis as a woman, and it may not be overt, there are obviously forces at work that are preventing women from starting and running their own business if they only make up 4.8% business revenue in the U.S. Like most forms of discrimination, it may not be in your face. It's the quiet way that the bank turns you down for a loan because your a single mother, or the way that distributors charge you more for their services than male customers. It's silent, but heinously effective.
