Women Business Owners Increasing Across the Nation

Women business owners increasing across the nation

Throughout the United States, female business owners are steadily increasing. However, women still own far fewer businesses than men.

According to a report by Self Financial, the share of female business ownership has risen throughout the last decade from 35.2% in 2010 to 38.4% in 2019. In Oklahoma, there are more than 70,000 female business owners, amounting to 37% of all business owners in the state.

When describing reasons men or women start businesses, both cite being their own boss, following a passion or pursuing a new opportunity. However, women are much more likely than men to mention increased flexibility.
