Is the publishing environment a woman-friendly environment? We will analyse whether projects and start-ups led by women offer added value or have a different focus to projects led by men. In general, the mission of male-led projects tends towards selling to a third party, scaling it, making it bigger as soon as possible, while projects led by women tend to create enterprise gradually in a realistic way. If women are the great readers of the world, why do they not usually occupy senior management positions? Why are the majority of books published by male authors?
