The Development of Female Entrepreneurship in the Function of Overcoming Unemployment of Women in Serbia
AbstractEntrepreneurship is the engine of economic development of each country. The above facts indicate that entrepreneurship should be given special attention and it should constantly be developed. As one of the possible directions of development of entrepreneurship in recent decades, the development of women entrepreneurship stands out. Although in most countries of the world it is believed that women are less capable for entrepreneurship than men, and despite the fact that the majority of large enterprises are managed by men, a rise of women entrepreneurs in the world has been noticed, especially in developing countries. And in recent years in Serbia the number of companies headed by women has increased, so it is now about 25%, which means that women control or manage every fourth company in Serbia. As reasons for this increase we could cite the change of consciousness among women and that they can be just as successful in leading the company as men, but also the fact that starting their own business can supplement their income and improve themselves through self-employment, increase their independence and be more respected in society. Although women are forced to fight in today's world to be recognized not only as women-mothers but also as successful women-entrepreneurs, their determination, perseverance, willingness to take risks and all the problems which entrepreneurship brings, show that the time of women's entrepreneurship is yet to come.
