Women are starting businesses more today than ever. Women now make up nearly half of the national workforce (47%). The most common types of businesses owned by women are healthcare/social assistance, professional/technical services, and retail. There is still a gap between men and women’s leadership in business worldwide and in the U.S. The gap is decreasing over time and in other countries it is nearly gone. For example in Norway women make up over 40% of board members of major companies.
