Nexus between Women Entrepreneurship Development and Empowerment: Bangladesh Context

This paper aims to analyze the relationship between two major approaches of development: women entrepreneurship development and women empowerment that have been in application since a couple of decades in the developing world including Bangladesh. The analysis has been drawn upon recent theoretical debates and arguments supported by empirical cases from Bangladesh. The paper argues, at the conceptual level, the relationship between women entrepreneurship development and women empowerment is complementary. The empirical evidences from Bangladesh, however, show that the typical entrepreneurship development approaches basically take a micro-finance based a narrow notion of entrepreneurship, which results in slow empowerment of women folks.
