Abstract: Les femmes ont toujours travaillé. Mais, leur activité n’a été reconnue officiellement qu’à partir de la fin du 19e siècle avec le développement de l’emploi salarié et les premières lois sociales. En matière d’entrepreneuriat, la situation est comparable, la femme a joué un rôle important dans l’entreprise en tant que conjoint. A l’heure actuelle, les femmes représentent 30% des entrepreneurs. Mais, la femme est-elle un entrepreneur comme les autres ? Pour répondre à cette question, nous avons mené une enquête à Dunkerque (Nord, France), ville dans laquelle l’emploi a été longtemps salarié (ouvrier) et masculin. L’entrepreneuriat féminin est un phénomène nouveau à Dunkerque. Women have always worked, but their activity was only recognized by the law at the end of the 19th century with the development of salaried employment and the first social laws. The situation is quite the same for entrepreneurship; the woman has played an important role in the entreprise with the status of the entrepreneur’s wife. Today 30% of the entreprises are founded by women. But is woman an entrepreneur like the others? We will try to answer to this question with an investigation achieved in Dunkirk (North of France), where employment was during a long time salaried employment for (men) workers. In this town, female entrepreneurship is a new phenomenon.
