For women, entrepreneurship, and the socioeconomic advancement of our country, October 25th is a very important day for us all! Today marks the official 28th Birthday of the passing of H.R. 5050, better known as the Women’s Business Ownership Act (and the Council’s 28th Birthday). As a key day of National Women’s Small Business Month, we would like to celebrate the achievements of H.R. 5050 and the women business owners and stakeholders that continue to champion for women entrepreneurs all across the country. This Act was a decades-long culmination of motivated women entrepreneurs, key stakeholders, policymakers, advocates, and allies that saw the crucial need for equal access for women business owners and governmental support to women in business.
