I write a column on workplace issues for my local newspaper. I would like to write a column on the evolving role of women in business in this nation. I read in USA TODAY that one third of all American businesses are now owned by women. I am curious as to what that number was in say 1950, 1960, 1970 and 1980. The article in USA TODAY cited several reasons why women owned companies are prospering, not the least of which was women are more compassionate, thereby fostering better relations with their employees. Any help you could give me on this topic would be appreciated.

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM. For information on women owned businesses, you might want to contact: the National Foundation for Women Business Owners, or the Business Women's Network, both of which are linked to FEMINIST.COM under our Women's Careers and Professional Organizations section at. If you can't find anything through these suggestions, please let me know and I will try to think of other suggestions - good luck with your search and with your story.
