This paper argues that research on social entrepreneurs does not given adequate consideration to gender. It brings together the literature on social entrepreneurs and female entrepreneurs, while also drawing on the gender/diversity literature. This paper is of interest to researchers examining women as social entrepreneurs. It is also relevant to government agencies and social enterprise organisations who are looking to gain a more nuanced understanding of social entrepreneurs, their characteristics and the issues they face. Given the lack of research on women’s contribution as social entrepreneurs, this paper suggests other possible areas of study to advance this field of research. It suggests key avenues of further work to better understand the way in which sex and gender interact with the practices of social entrepreneurs.
