The #MeToo movement has thrown a spotlight on the sexual harassment women often endure in the workplace
Despite that challenge, women entrepreneurs are gaining serious traction in the world of business, according to a new report from FitSmallBusiness.com. In fact, female-owned businesses grew five times faster than the national average over the past nine years, and California is ranked as the fourth best state for women-owned enterprises.
The Los Angeles Daily News reports that the list was topped by Georgia, which leads all states in the percentage of women-owned businesses. They account for more than 40 percent of Georgia’s overall mix of businesses. That was followed by Florida, Maryland, California, Colorado, Virginia, New York, Texas, Hawaii and New Mexico.
