About this book

This interdisciplinary volume discusses women’s global leadership and women’s rights advancement, identifying gender inequality as a persisting societal challenge and a major barrier to human development.

Drawing on intersectionality as an important analytic and methodological tool, the contributors analyse women’s leadership roles across the world, featuring perspectives on the US, Israel, and Brazil, amongst other countries. The book also contributes to the growing field of leadership, presenting cross-cultural examples and case-studies of outstanding women and female leaders, as well as discussing contemporary leadership theories, and examining obstacles to women’s leadership.

Global Perspectives on Women’s Leadership and Gender (In)Equality will be an important point of reference for students and scholars across the political sciences, women’s studies, feminist philosophy, business development, and history.

Reviews

“An enlightening collection of essays that provides case studies of mostly less-known women leaders, as well as a study of gender inequality in the creative industries, and a model for developing women leaders in business. Encompassing various countries from Serbia to Israel to those in Latin America, the essays demonstrate that leadership can be effective in fields other than politics, such as journalism, business and the arts, and that political leaders can have their impact whether or not they are members of a regime.” — Michal Fram Cohen, The Open University, Israel
