Research on women entrepreneurship is increasingly gaining traction in entrepreneurship research. Thus, and in considering this intensive focus on women entrepreneurship within the field of entrepreneurship, it is the right time to take stock and understand how it has evolved in the developing world. But and as opposed to undertaking a canvasing approach to studying this entrepreneurship phenomenon, this chapter pays attention on its trajectory in Nigeria – a Western African country in the sub-Saharan African region. The analysis presented in the chapter is categorised into three distinct phases, namely, pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial eras.
Such an approach is intended to generate deep insights into how women entrepreneurship has progressed over the years in Western African country. This is beneficial for various stakeholders including entrepreneurship scholars, practitioners and especially policymakers who have to support women entrepreneurs through targeted entrepreneurship policies.
