***Female Business Owners....how are they viewed?***
14 Nov 06
Where I come from (Iceland) it doesn't make much difference weather a business is owned by a man or a woman. We do have a very strong "women entrepreneurs" organization that has worked very hard to make that possible. We also have more women in high positions in large companies than most other countries and we were the first independent country in the world to elect a woman as a president. One of the largest companies in Iceland, Alcoa aluminum plant, is run by a woman now and is doing much better than when the men before her were running it. Women are usually considered to be more rational and realistic in business decissions while men tend to make more risks. Companies owned by women in Iceland are less likely to fail than companies run by men.
