California has nearly double the number of small, women-owned businesses as any other state, according to a government report released Monday--a reflection of widespread support networks for female entrepreneurs here. Nationwide, women-owned businesses increased 43% from 1987 to 1992, far more than the 26% increase for small businesses as a whole, according to the report. Women's small businesses made up more than a third of the nation's 17.3 million small businesses.

Female voters favored Clinton over George Bush by an eight-point margin in 1992.
