Troubling Women: Feminism, Leadership and Educational Change

by Jill Blackmore

Editorial Reviews

Blackmore (School of Social and Cultural Studies in the Faculty of Education, Deakin U., Australia) provides a historical overview of educational management and the "masculinist" models embedded in leadership and organizational processes, as well as analyzing equal opportunity policies, and presenting new research on how educational restructuring has produced specific dilemmas for women in educational leadership. In her conclusion, she proposes a feminist politics of educational leadership for postmodern times. While focusing on Australia, this volume is of likely interest to both educational practitioners and policymakers, as well as postgraduate students in the fields of educational administration, management, and policy.
