TAKE ACTION TODAY
Although women are only about half as likely as men to be involved in starting a business, this gender gap has been slowly closing over the past two decades. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has had uneven impacts across sectors and types of businesses and women entrepreneurs have been disproportionately affected. There is a risk that COVID-19 will undo decades of progress in advancing female entrepreneurship.
Our findings show that one in three women-led enterprises were either temporarily or permanently closed. This proportion is consistent across the states surveyed, although there is variation between temporarily and permanently closed statuses among states. The short-term economic impact of business closures is predictable given the slump in the market.
