Although women's status has improved remarkably in the 20th century in many societies, women continue to lack access to power and leadership compared with men. This book reviews research and theory concerning women's leadership. The articles included in the book provide evidence of bias in the evaluation of women, discuss effects of gender stereotypes on women's influence and leadership behaviors, and evaluate strategies for change.
