It’s hard to believe, but as recently as the 1980s, women who dreamed of owning businesses faced myriad barriers, including the inability to get a business loan without a male co-signer, difficulty getting federal contracts, not having a seat at the policy table and lack of gender-sensitive entrepreneurial education and training.
