Statistics on women-owned businesses

According to the Center for Women's Business Research, "one in every 11 women in the U.S. is a business owner." Other statistics show that "As of 2004, almost two-thirds (63%) of all women-owned businesses are privately-held, majority (51%) or more women-owned. That's a total of 6.7 million firms, employing 9.8 million people, and generating $1.2 trillion in sales."

Thanks to Yvonne DiVita for pointing out those statistics in her September 2005 article in the RPCN News.
