The theory of gendered organization and reported that it builds on the area that was previously untouched within feminist work. According to this theory, men control most organizations as they are in top positions. The male dominance has been ignored by the sociologists who used a traditional manner of theorizing the organizations as asexual and gender neutral. However, the concept is critical to modern feminists who were previously embarrassed or confused on the failure of collectivist alternative organizations that had generally evolved into more traditional hierarchies over time. It is countered by many researchers that the traditional assumption of organizational analysis must not include gender. Also, the organizations need to be clear in reproducing the paid and unpaid work, transmission of gender stereotypes, income and status inequality reproduction and effects on the above-mentioned behaviors and actions of the individuals. The feminists must be interested in creating organizations that maintain feminism as the organizational gendering occurs because of the gender oppression faced by women. The new perspective reveals how the patterns of advantage and disadvantage, action and emotion, exploitation and control and meaning and identity are analyzed from the perspectives of masculinity and femininity.
There are four gendered processes revealing how the organizations are gendered. Firstly, there is the production of gender divisions that include power, subordination, and gender patterning of jobs and wages and hierarchies. The practices that reproduce and resist these processes are also part of this level. It is clear that not only jobs are gendered but evaluation systems are gendered as they use the criteria that use pre-existing inequality base. Thus, traditionally privileged skills for males are preferred and thus gendered male originations exist that separate private work of household from public work.
Women face difficulties in accessing finances through external sources due to which they have to fund the business using personal money and informal borrowings from family and friends. It is one of the key issues for women when they are starting the business. Women have fewer opportunities of gaining access to credit because of multiple reasons that include negative perceptions about female business by the loan officers, unwillingness to accept household items as collateral or lack of collateral. Women access to finance is constrained by a number of factors that are influenced by supply and demand. The supply side factors include features of SMEs owned by women, lack of collateral, limited awareness of female-specific credit risk and policy bias and discrimination. On the other hand, demand-side factors that act as financial barriers for women are financing terms, perceived lack of need, the anticipation of rejection, complicated procedures and risk aversion.
