This is a very interesting point as one of the main obstacles often holding women starting up businesses back is other women with the 'crab in the bucket' mentality. Women so often have to balance work and family, and they find that they cannot escape from their homemaker roles. This may cause resentment towards those who take the opportunity to start up a business of their own. Its often seen especially in the older generation showing this mentality towards those from the younger generation for having more opportunities.
