This chapter aims to explore the emergence of women entrepreneurs across the Globe. Moreover, the authors analyse the existent research and knowledge about Communities of Practice (CoPs) and information communication technologies (ICTs) and raise awareness of their role in supporting women entrepreneurs. The authors attempted systematic and unsystematic literature review to investigate the emergence of women entrepreneurs across the Globe and the role of Communities of Practice. There was an unprecedented increase in women entrepreneurship. Furthermore, the barriers faced by women entrepreneurs in the developed and the developing countries are slightly different. CoPs and networking play an important role for women's learning. The chapter widens the knowledge regarding Communities of Practice and their role in helping women entrepreneurs and is an original contribution to the research field of women entrepreneurship.
