This paper analyses whether positive discrimination policies aimed at women entrepreneurs are valid. The paper is based on the opinions of a group of Spanish female entrepreneurs who participated in local public programmes run during the period from 1993 to 2002. The results reveal that these kinds of programmes are very positive and useful for female entrepreneurs. They not only address the main obstacles women encounter because of their gender but also have a positive effect due to the dynamics that occur in a group of women.
