520    Women in the UK frequently do not consider business 
       ownership as an alternative to other forms of employment 
       or as a means to gain economic benefits. The number of 
       women currently entering in to businesses in the North of 
       England is decreasing and is less than half of that in the
       South. This paper examines the preliminary findings from a
       longitudinal study exploring the socially created barriers
       to business start-up that inhibit the growth of women 
       entrepreneurs and how they may be removed. The study 
       employed an action research approach to investigate the 
       experiences of UK women entering into micro and small 
       business ownership, emphasising the social construction of
       many of the barriers faced by women in the pursuit of 
       business ownership. In doing so it examined personal and 
       motivational factors surrounding the start-up process, the
       economic and physical barriers encountered, as well as the
       perceived and actual support and advice available to women
