The theories and empirical insightspresented in the five papers are summarised and compared. Key directions for future work areoutlined.Design/methodology/approach – Articles in the special issue include cross-national studies, multilevelanalyses drawing on qualitative and quantitative methods, longitudinal analysis and feministresearch. The Editorial explores methodological challenges, including how to encourage cross-nationalcollaboration, research the circumstances in which entrepreneurship is gender liberating and embedgender theory in research on male entrepreneurship.Findings – A comparison is made of the findings from the papers in this special issue, to draw outwider implications for our understanding of entrepreneurship as a gendered process.Originality/value – This special issue represents a significant milestone in advancing ourunderstanding of all entrepreneurship as gendered.
