According to the Census Bureau's latest Survey of Minority-Owned Business Enterprises, women owned 26 percent of the nation's 20.8 million non-farm businesses - which translates into 5,417,034 firms. Those businesses also employed 7.1 million paid workers, and generated $818.7 billion in sales and receipts.

The website champions the cause of women small business owners and their ever-increasing role in the American marketplace, according to U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao. The site aims to serve these women by providing the resources they need to continue driving their businesses forward, creating more jobs in the nation's economy. Features of the website include information regarding key issues such as access to capital, health insurance, government procurement, retirement security, technology, and the tax code.

"As secretary of labor, I see first-hand how women-owned businesses are creating more jobs for American workers," Chao says. "These businesswomen are vital to our nation's economy. I hope will provide easy access to federal resources to help women entrepreneurs in advancing their businesses' growth and, in turn, further our nation's economic expansion and create more jobs."

The site will be regularly updated and will provide special features for women business-owners such as webcasts, registration for upcoming events, and reports on what women entrepreneurs are thinking and saying on key issues.
