A recent report from the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor indicates that there are significantly fewer female entrepreneurs than male entrepreneurs around the world.

Recent female entrepreneurship successes include:
- The Migrant and Immigrant Community Action Project (MICA) – Founded by Nicole Corté, who earned a master’s degree in social work from the Brown School and a Juris Doctorate from the School of Law in May 2012; and Jessica Mayo, who earned a Juris Doctorate in May 2012, the organization works with low-income immigrants to overcome barriers to justice.
