A Feminist Entrepreneur is a woman (or man!), who creates a sustainable business that advances female emancipation and gender equality. A 'feminist enterprise' should sell a product or service that addresses at least one Pillar of Female Empowerment.
Using business as a tool for female equality is contrary to many teachings of 'traditional' feminism which usually looks towards charity and government based policies based on 'victim politics' for solutions to the issues around gender equality. To the detriment of women in general, traditional feminists have often associated patriarchy with capitalism.
We argue that feminism can use capitalism as a tool for achieving female equality as well as to provide meaningful jobs. Our Feminist Enterprise Blog lists real world examples of Feminist Entrepreneur projects. Though we do list feminist non-profits, we tend to list those that are connected to market based approaches and solutions and create feminist jobs!
