More technological, more digital, readier to take up a challenge: the crisis has not stopped women: 35,000 new female businesses entered the market from 2010 to 2015, 65 per cent of the total increase (53,000). This female dynamism triples that of males (3.1 per cent of the growth rate as opposed to 0.5 percent of male business men). It has led to a quota of 1,312,000 firms that are directed by women and give employment to almost 3,000,000 people. The data of the report Imprese InGenere, compiled by Unioncamere, portrays a world in transformation which, however, does not succeed in freeing itself from the relics of a system that penalizes mothers and relegates the “Bel Paese” (Italy) to one of the last places in the E.U. classification for women who work.
