Entreprenuership Is (or Should Be) Gender Neutral

I hate the term “female entrepreneurship.” We don’t call entrepreneurial endeavors led by men “male entrepreneurship.” We just call it entrepreneurship. Unintentionally or not, “female entrepreneurship” implies a rare, or “wow, women can start and lead businesses? Really? Since when,” distinction. The gap widens as we separate the genders into distinct categories. I’m not the only one calling for us to crack the glass for equality on this ceiling.
