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.

To this end, the CREDOC has elaborate this study.
