Book News Annotation:

Kellerman (public leadership, Harvard U. Kennedy School of Government) and Rhode (law, Stanford U.) bring together 17 essays that focus on issues facing women in leadership. They address the continued underrepresentation of women in a variety of leadership roles and ways to change the problem. Topics examined include stereotypes; leadership style; female judges (in a chapter by Anita Hill); women in politics, such as leaders in Afghanistan and Iran and female candidates for the US presidency; concepts of authority and power; corporate leadership; and the belief that there is a natural order for men to be in charge. Reflecting the multidisciplinary shape of the volume, contributors work in public leadership, women's studies, psychology, organizational behavior, political science, economics, law, and other fields at organizations and universities in the US and Europe.

Synopsis:

An all-star cast of contributors share their thoughts on women and leadership

This volume brings together preeminent scholars from a wide range of disciplines to discuss the state of women’ s leadership in both the public and private sectors, at home and abroad, and as exercised formally and informally. It addresses how women today are exercising power, authority, and influence– and what still blocks their advance to leadership positions. Chapters are organized around both women in particular fields– such as business, law, government, politics, science, and the nonprofit sector– and more general topics such as work/life balance, organizational structures, and gender roles. Contributors include Anita Hill, Debra Meyerson, David Gergen, and other respected academics and authors.

Barbara Kellerman (Cambridge, MA) is Research Director of the Center for Public Leadership and Lecturer in Public Policy at Harvard University’ s Kennedy School of Government. Deborah L. Rhode (Stanford, CA) is the Ernest W. McFarland Professor of Law and Director of the Stanford Center on Ethics.
