Abstract

HERNANDEZ, Mana E.; BARRETO BERNAL, Patricia C.  and  GUTIERREZ MOLINA, Óscar. The role of women in the consolidation of entreprenuerhip between 1950 and 1970. Rev. esc.adm.neg [online]. 2017, n.83, pp.73-92. ISSN 0120-8160.  http://dx.doi.org/10.21158/01208160.n83.2017.1824.

This research paper describes the role of women in the consolidation of entrepreneurship in Boyaca between 1950 and 1970. For this reason, the First and the Second Notaries in Tunja, Boyaca, were consulted to attest the foundation of companies managed by women, also interviewing those women who started their own companies during those decades and therefore impacted entrepreneurial development in this region. An analysis of documents and information resulting from those interviews concluded that the real and active role of women in business in the 50's, 60's and 70's was slightly representative, yet women participated as strong leaders who avoided social conventions to reach their goals.

Keywords : Woman manager; woman; gender; companies; role.
