This briefing compares findings from two data sets (the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor Survey and the Annual Small Business Survey) which suggest that women are underrepresented as leaders of private sector social enterprises, but are more equally represented leading or initiating third sector organisations. In order to ascertain how the wider field of social entrepreneurship is 'gendered', the authors turn their attention to third sector organisations created by social entrepreneurs.
