Here is a multiple-case study of stories of women leaders in education. The women in this ethnically diverse group of educators were purposefully selected based on recognition for outstanding leadership ability and performance at the local, regional, state, and/or national level.

Winning Women covers a broad range of pertinent topics: early childhood experiences, educational background, leadership style and skills, career path, mentoring experiences, personal and professional barriers, and advice to other women considering leadership careers. For women teachers and administrators in education as well as any woman interested in leadership.
