Female entrepreneurs leading economic resurgence
The Hill
While recent headlines have captured the reemergence of robust corporations following a crippling recession, the news continues to overlook the everyday champions of our economy — women small business owners. Over the past six years, since the depth of the U.S. recession, the only businesses that have provided a net increase in employment are large, publicly traded corporations and privately held majority women-owned firms. In all other privately held firms, employment has declined over the 2007–2013 period, yet women leaders have remained resilient, becoming unsung heroes and silently revitalizing the economy, one Main Street at a time.

It's important to note that many of today's small businesses are owned and operated by women. They represent 50 percent or more of privately held companies but only 4.2 percent of their businesses generate more than $1 million in revenue. So how can female entrepreneurs take advantage of the upswing in the economy and take their businesses to the next level?

The countries with the highest number of female executives are not the ones you'd expect
PolicyMic
"When women are called to action in times of turbulence, it is often on account of their composure, sense of responsibility and great pragmatism in delicate situations."
