Abstract

It appears to be a collective acceptance that women must reason like men, act like women, look like girls, and work like horses. Talking about women vs. men in leadership, a person must first differentiate between the female aspect of leadership—delegating, pull leadership participative, encouraging, motivating, inspiring—and the male element of leadership—enforcing regulations, pushing people, setting rules, creating obligations, corporate behavior, putting limitations. The chapter contains the existing literature concerning women; entrepreneurship and family business in Turkey is studied, followed by the revision of the entrepreneurship of women due to Turkey's cultural context. Profiles of Turkish entrepreneurial women are deliberated upon. Then problems of entrepreneurial women are discussed in the latter segment. The chapter concludes with the applications and policy recommendations to aid entrepreneurship of women in Turkey.
