Help Support Women’s organizations

Over the last 15 years, women-owned firms have grown by one and a half times the rate of other small enterprises and now account for almost 30 percent of all businesses. Additionally, one in five firms with revenue of $1 million or more is woman-owned.

Women-run businesses make up 40 percent of all businesses and generate $1 trillion in revenues. A recent report by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce found women small business owners have been more heavily impacted by the pandemic than their male counterparts, not to mention overall growth.

Women-owned businesses have been a driving force in the economy’s growth. About 42% of businesses were owned by women in 2019, compared with about 4% in 1972, according to American Express’ State of Women-Owned Business report in 2019

Indeed, the pandemic’s job losses and stay-at-home orders have hit women especially hard. Since February, women have lost nearly 6 million jobs, according an analysis of Bureau of Labor Statistics data from the National Women’s Law Center.
