Description

Women & Leadership: Navigating Change from Ancient Times to the Present (2nd edition) includes new chapters on #MeToo, The Strongman Problem, Conservative Women Leaders, Black Women Leaders, and First Ladies. Written by some of the world’s leading leadership scholars and edited by Karen Christensen with George R. Goethals and Crystal L. Hoyt of the Jepson School of Leadership Studies, this unique volume addresses today’s pressing issues and highlights the work of women leaders across the world.

These experts look at how effective women leaders are working to achieve equality before the law, ensure women’s safety in their homes and workplaces, and share a vision for full participation in every aspect of society. The new subtitle, Navigating Change from Ancient Times to the Present, emphasizes the tremendous importance of past achievements—such as the right to control one’s fertility—and the brave, visionary work of our foremothers, who changed their communities, organizations, institutions, and nations in their efforts to make the world a better place.

The book aims to encourage women’s achievement and success, wherever they live and whatever their circumstances. It will help students and citizens who want a more nuanced explanation of what we know about women as leaders, and details how they have led in different parts of the world, and in past centuries. It includes twenty-five biographies of women leaders in many domains, not only politics but education, fashion, sports, and social and environmental movements. It was designed for use in courses in women’s and leadership studies, as well as more traditional subjects such as world history and political science. It is also valuable in executive leadership training.

“A diverse, timely overview, successfully navigating the topic without descending into essentializing claims.” —CHOICE

An earlier award-winning work, the Encyclopedia of Leadership, was created by Berkshire and published by SAGE, a globally renowned academic publisher whose reference program Berkshire launched.
