Abstract :

This study seeks to respond to this question: does gender egalitarianism (GE) affect the enactment of entrepreneurial intentions? It refers to the TPB and analyses the effects of GE on the impact of intention on activity. Doing so, it will contribute to understanding how GE moderates the entrepreneurial intention-action gap. It applies a quantitative approach employing data from GEM and GLOBE at country level. Findings show that GE value moderates in nonlinear way the effects of entrepreneurial intentions on activities, and that GE value has also a curvilinear effect on entrepreneurial activity, while GE practice does not show any moderating role, both linear and nonlinear, in such relationship. All the relationships were controlled for country level variables. Byline: Chiara Cannavale, Lorenza Claudio, Giorgia Rivieccio, Iman Zohoorian Nadali
