Women Leading Education Across the Continents-Overcoming the Barriers is the third collection of research about and stories of women leading education on every continent in the world. Internationally recognized scholars and practitioners offer a research-based conversation and systematic collaborative inquiry in exploring the status of women in educational leadership. Their work invites global policy development highlighting women's educational leadership as a critical social justice issue. The array of topics this volume includes are gender status and educational leadership, challenges and barriers for women leaders, confronting the barriers, leading in challenging contexts, and deconstructing the discourse on gendered leadership. This compelling book offers food for the intellect and rage for the belly that impels forward the moral imperative of women leading education internationally.
