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.
