Abstract: Women are emerging as important players in Jordan's economy. Despite an increasing presence in the entrepreneurial activity in the tourism sector, there are nonetheless a few challenges affecting women in this area including difficult access to finance, education qualifications, entrepreneurial training as well as a myriad of socio-cultural constraints that can hinder enterprise growth and female entrepreneurship success. This article offers a general overview and analysis of three prominent challenges facing women entrepreneurs in Jordan and discusses possible remedies and recommendations for governments to promote women entrepreneurs with proactive roles in economic development in general with a special emphasis on the tourism sector in Jordan. A quantitative research design was used, and a survey was planned that consisted of five parts to explore the factors affecting women entrepreneurship success in Jordan.
