Study on female entrepreneurship in popular neighbourhoods

23.11.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

Entrepreneurship is more and more presented as a relevant way to fight unemployment and the worsening condition of salaried employment. Women who are affected by underemployment (part-time jobs) and are paid less than salaried men, only represent 30% of company creators. The objective to reach the 40% threshold in 2017 has been set up by the 2013 National Plan for Female Entrepreneurship, and has then been extended to poorer neighbourhoods in the framework of the city/urban policy. To this end, the CREDOC has elaborate this study.
