Contextual Embeddedness of Women's Entrepreneurial Agency Formation
In this study, I offer a relational analysis of entrepreneurial agency formation by paying attention to the intersectionality of ethnicity, class and gender. The study emphasizes the importance of power relations in shaping the nature and degree of contextual (dis)embeddedness of women’s entrepreneurial agency. To that end, I focus on seventeen immigrant women entrepreneurs’ capital development strategy narratives in highlighting their struggles to gain power and defend their legitimate positions as a basis for forming differential degree of entrepreneurial agency within the socio-cultural context(s) of migration.
