This paper reviews the status quo of women entrepreneurs considering the impact of
socio-cultural norms and institutions on women’s entrepreneurship in Vietnam. First, we
discuss relevant literature and provide an overview of women’s entrepreneurship in Vietnam.
We analyse the impact of socio-cultural norms and institutional landscape on motivation to
