Abstract

This paper explores the importance of fields of power for women entrepreneurs in rural communities. Specifically, we employ Bourdieu's (1977; 1984; 1986) theory of practice and investigate the interplay between field characteristics relating to habitus and entrepreneurial capital and their impact on entrepreneurial behaviours and practices.
