dc.description.abstractA range of reasons is cited to explain
 gender differences in business performance in Africa. Within
 those, the sector of operations is consistently identified
 as a major issue. This paper uses a mixed methods approach
 to assess how women entrepreneurs in Uganda start (and
 strive) operating firms in male-dominated sectors, and what
 hinders other women from doing so. The study finds that
 women who cross over into male-dominated sectors make as
 much as men, and three times more than women who stay in
 female-dominated sectors. The paper examines a set of
 factors to explain the differences in sector choices, and
 finds that there is a problem of information about
 opportunities in male-dominated industries. The analysis
 also concludes that psychosocial factors, particularly the
 influence of male role models and exposure to the sector
 from family and friends, are critical in helping women
 circumvent or overcome the norms that undergird occupational segregation.
