Abstract

The field of entrepreneurship has witnessed a “contextual turn”, which recognizes that entrepreneurship is affected by many factors beyond the individual. Context is more complicated within women’s entrepreneurship because it is differently gendered for men and women, hence, it is important to account for it. This paper aims to determine the extent to which extant studies on women’s entrepreneurship take aspects of context into account; to explore which aspects they account for, and, crucially, to identify which aspects are missing. We draw on data from a systematic literature review of 30-years of published research on women’s entrepreneurship between 1983-2012. We contribute to extant scholarship by enhancing understanding of the importance of context in women’s entrepreneurship research, constructing a typology of context aspects, and theorizing toward a more appropriate framework of accounting for context in future studies.
