Obstacles for entering e-business: the gender aspect. Allied Academic International Conference, 6 (1), 1-12 Poulios, T & Vasiliadis, A. (2007).

Women entrepreneurship is an important research field while women have been underrepresented to the most fields of the economy. The present article attempts a first literature review to the women obstacles in e-business enterprises. Moreover we present the results of a conducted qualitative research for the women’s opinion in net entrepreneurship and the obstacles that they face. The research confirms what international literature states and shows that women face more obstacles and problems than men do in entering and developing an e- entrepreneurial life. This is observed because women should combine family and professional life playing different roles, while they are obliged to face gender stereotypes that are still exist in our society. Future research should focus on the opinions of the entrepreneurs researching them in a quantitative way.
