dc.description.abstract This paper looks at the issues and challenges of Muslim women’s entrepreneurship in Australia and Canada at the intersections of entrepreneurship and leadership. As a starting point, this paper will investigate the types of businesses the two groups of women are engaged in and reasons for their choice. The paper looks at the resources and supporting factors for their entry into business. It further enquires into the leadership roles they play in the creation and operations of their businesses. The empirical research is exploratory and adopts the feminist-qualitative approach which listens to the voices of women. The research found that the Muslim women largely relied on family resources in business start-ups and operations. In most cases these women were able to sell their innovative ideas to family members to gain their support, however family tensions do arise and these women are equally innovative in their negotiations. The socio-economic benefits arising from the policy of inclusion of Muslim women in entrepreneurship is significant and must be supported and encouraged. en
