Gould, Sara K., Ed.; Parzen, Julia, Ed.

Part 1 contains three chapters: (1) "Business Creation and Local Economic Development--Why Entrepreneurship Should Be Encouraged" (Beth Siegel); (2) "Women in the Labour Market--The Choices Women Have" (Julianne Malveaux); and (3) "Women and Enterprise Creation: Barriers and Opportunities" (Candida Brush).
