Women's sustainable entrepreneurship has increased significantly due to all parties’ demands and the positive contributions to sustainable development (SDG). Entrepreneurs are motivated to carry out their sustainable enterprises by benefiting society, the planet, and the economy. However, women entrepreneurs face various barriers imposed by a patriarchal power system. The main barriers are gender discrepancy, little government support, lack of financing, and individual capacities. Additionally, the family, especially the husband, promotes or limits the creation and execution of women’s businesses. For this reason, this research investigates female leadership, business legitimacy, motivations, and barriers when creating female enterprises. The information was compiled from a vast number of articles related to sustainable female entrepreneurship found in the Scopus database.
