Being an entrepreneur is not easy and being a female one is even harder. Historically and in the current day, female entrepreneurs face many challenges to starting and sustaining businesses. Not only do female entrepreneurs have to face inequality, limited access to education, familial pressure, sexism and more in many patriarchal societies– but women also have to tackle funding biases’, a lack of role models and supportive networks in the business world as well. Despite these challenges, female entrepreneurs can and are emerging, and their ranks are growing each day.  Tia Shah explores the many struggles that girl entrepreneurs have historically had to overcome, and the ones that they currently face – seeing how a changing environment and world has eliminated some challenges while perpetuating others.  --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/girlspeak/support
