„To change the world, one has to change the ways of making the world, that is, the vision of the world and the practical operations by which groups are produced and reproduced” (Pierre Bourdieu). Recently, gender relation on a labour market is a widely discussed problem. In my work I focused on a few elements connected with gender relations on the labour market. I investigated the issue of women’s discrimination from a perspective of women who decided to enter into self-employment. I discussed push and pull factors that decided why women wanted to become self-employed, barriers they need to faced, beneﬁ ts connected with being self-employed and relations between entrepreneurs. Main goal was to describe the phenomenon of self- employment, taking into consideration its ability to change unequal access to economic power on the labour market and, as a result, in the whole social order.
