Unfortunately, far fewer women than men hold positions of leadership around the world. This is not due to the fact that women are less skilled at leadership than men, but is due to a mix of societal norms, economic policies, and other pressures that push women out of leadership positions or downplay their accomplishments. This volume aims to guide women to become leaders in all aspects of their lives, whether or not they take up formal leadership in their careers. A glossary, a For More Information section, and suggestions for additional research are also provided.
