Summary Gender and Entrepreneurship in Iran provides insight into the role of informal networks in employment creation in Iran. Iran is estimated to have the third largest informal sector in the MENA region-a major source of income for many low-income households whose numbers are growing as sanctions tighten. Gender and Entrepreneurship in Iran provides insight into the role of informal networks in employment creation in Iran from a gender perspective. Drawing upon theories of social capital, social network, and the postcolonial feminist critique of mainstream development, this analysis sheds light on the ways in which poverty and unemployment may be tackled
