Knowledge and the Enterprising Self: Workplace Refugees Navigating Entrepreneurial Discourse.
Fenwick, Tara
Studies in the Education of Adults, v33 n2 p127-34 Oct 2001
A discursive study of Canadian women who had started businesses identified five themes about women and entrepreneurship: (1) business plans as the "right" way; (2) profit/growth as success measures; (3) women as misplaced in the masculine business frontier; (4) success in business as liberation; and (5) effect on women's "other" work of childrearing. (Contains 18 references.) (SK)
