We examine the relationship between corruption and gender in business using panel data of Vietnamese SMEs from 2011 to 2015. We find that female owners are less likely to be corrupt than their male peers. Formal firms are more involved in corruption and household businesses less. Corruption not only occurs between firms and government officials, but also amongst firms. Overall, the paper suggests that an increasing number of female entrepreneurs might be associated with a less corrupt business environment.
