Overview

As a given, in no country do Women participate in political leadership on a par with men. This collection of writings explores women’s own strategies for developing or initiating leadership by women around the world. Women have created thousands of vibrant, visionary organisations of their own, yet they remain absent from the key political and economic institutions shaping access to and control over resources. Women and Leadership is about women resisting exploitation in the workplace; women heading households; women leading in the international policy forum. It offers insights for development policy makers and practitioners aiming to promote gender equality and to support would be women leaders.
