Why Nordic nations lack female entrepreneurs

2013-08-21 The RoosterGNN

The News Agancy RoosterGNN writes about a working paper by Magnus Henrekson and Mikael Stenkula (IFN): “Why are there so few female top executives in egalitarian welfare states?” "Through a comparison of Anglo-Saxon and Northern European countries the authors show that the Nordic nations are indeed gender equal in many ways. But Nordic societies also have a stronger under-representation of women in top positions than in Anglo-Saxon societies, which relates to the policy of welfare states."
