Despite this rise of women-owned businesses, male-owned businesses continued to make up the majority.  Becker-Medina detailed that male-owned businesses held  “53.7% of all firms (14.8 million businesses), while female-owned businesses comprised 35.8% of all firms (with 9.9 million businesses). Equally male-/female-owned businesses comprised 8.9 percent (with 2.5 million businesses) and 1.6 percent (with 0.4 million businesses publicly held/not classifiable by gender (or ethnicity, race and veteran status).”

“Overall, women-owned over a third of all firms in 2012, but the proportion was greater among minorities and varied by group,” continued BECKER-MEDINA. “The 8.0 million minority-owned firms were almost equally distributed between male- and female-owned, with 3.8 million firms each (0.4 million minority-owned firms were equally male-/female-owned).”
