This chapter attempts to present a review of the female entrepreneurship in the world from its origins as a field of study with the stress on the future. Using the new venture creation phenomenon as the criteria to review the literature and Gartner's (1985) four-dimensional conceptual framework to make a classification of studies according to the dimensions involved in the venture creation. The individual dimension (the entrepreneur), the organization dimension (the venture created), the process dimension (previous activities to start a venture), and the environment dimension (external factors) are presented. This structure recognizes the complexity and variation that thrives in the new venture creation phenomenon.
