About this Book

Over the past thirty years the number of women assuming leadership roles has grown dramatically. This original and important book identifies the challenges faced by women in positions of leadership, and discusses the intersection between theories of leadership and feminism.


  • Examines models of feminist leadership, feminist influences on leadership styles and agendas, and the diversity of theoretical and ethnic perspectives of feminist leaders
  • Addresses how diverse women lead, how feminist principles contribute to leadership, the influence of ethnic groups and the barriers that women face as leaders
  • Transforms existing models of leadership by incorporating gender issues
  • Looks to the future of feminist leadership and identifies what must be done to train and mentor the next generation of feminist leaders
