Abstract [en]

especially in developing countries where it plays not only an economic role but a socialrole as well, changing communities and consequently, the whole society.The purpose of this paper is to identify the main motivation and barriers faced bywomen in developing countries, especially concerning the case study, namely Braziland Egypt. In order to accomplish that, a deep literature review has been done andten cases were analysed from a qualitative perspective.The main results found were that most of women in those countries are pushed intoentrepreneurship rather than pulled and the main barriers are more aligned to thesocial context, lack of education, gender inequality issues rather than barriers relatedto business expertise.We do believe that the main contribution might relies on the fact that it brings differentperspectives within female entrepreneurship from two different countries.
