The Washington Post
Starting and running a small business is challenging enough, especially right now, with the economic recovery still sputtering. It's all the more difficult if you're a woman.

Why women entrepreneurs are happier than their male counterparts
Fast Company
There's a lot being said out there about the state of women in this country. The gender gap is alive and well when it comes to salary, confidence, happiness and the number of women in the C-suite and science. Women aren't as happy as they were in the 1970s, research has shown, and their happiness relative to that of men has taken a nosedive.
