Mothers entering entrepreneurship: social status and experiences of mompreneurs

Gathered in two organizations in France, mompreneurs define themselves as woman executives who created their own independent business after having a child. A documentary analysis shows that the word, made up in the US, has been imported to France thanks to a deliberate social and economic construct. This discursive effort hides the social roots of this identity: as the collected qualitative and quantitative material highlights, the women who take over the social image of mompreneurs are mainly upper class women. Thanks to this image, they find a way to express their symbolic, practical and socially-conditionned relationship to work and maternity. © Presses de Sciences Po (P.F.N.S.P.).
