The aim of this study is to investigate the significant differences between women small businesses characteristics (age, education, social status, experience) and effectiveness of their businesses in Jordan. A purposive sample of 175 women who own small businesses in Jordan was used to collect data via questionnaires. Frequencies and percentages were used to describe the sample and one way ANOVA analysis to test hypotheses. The study depicted that there is a significant difference between women's education, social status and effectiveness of their businesses whereas women's age and experience do not indicate a significant difference on effectiveness.
