This has been like no other year for bringing the issue of women and power to the attention of the American public. Hillary Clinton's competitive bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, followed by John McCain's strategic selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate, has made crystal clear the power and influence of women in the political arena today. Women also are using the power of their purses to influence this election. On average, women earn 60 percent more than they did three decades ago, and, despite a gender gap in pay equity, tripled their giving to political candidates from 2000 to 2008. In ...

Women and Leadership
Recent years more and more women have appeared on the international arena as successful political leaders. This tendency shows that women have the same leadership abilities as men and can successfully perform as Presidents and Prime Ministers. This trend is a good sign for leadership in the world which can be interpreted as a great step towards equal opportunities and the ability of public to overcome prejudices against women abilities to lead and rule. Women leadership abilities are formed under the influence of individual characteristics, internal and external environment. It is concerned with why they choose a ... market research, surveys and trends

Women and Leadership | ONE
Today, as you might know, is International Women’s Day, and I wanted to share this fascinating pair of articles in the New York Times that examines the roles of women both in peace-keeping efforts and leadership in Liberia. This key excerpt is taken from the latter: Women hold six of the top positions in her cabinet of 22 — the Foreign, Commerce, Justice, Agriculture, Sports and Gender ministries. [Liberian president Ellen Johnson] Sirleaf is assertive about why they rose in the government of the first woman democratically elected to lead an African state. “Women have stronger commitment. They work harder. They’re honest, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Blog | Unwritten Rules by Lynn Harris
In our privileged world “Feminism” has become a dirty word. For most western young women, to be called a Feminist is an insult. My son and his girlfriends associate Feminism with anti-men and women who wear unattractive clothes. To them the “F” word is, at best, dated and no longer relevant. If we could perhaps change the name, I’m told, Feminism might become more palatable. I don’t really care what it’s called. What I do care about is that the job of Feminism is far from done. In fact, there are many urgent reasons why we need Feminism now, more than ever. Here are 20 of them: Approximately once every ten seconds, a girl ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Women's Leadership
There are a small group of people in the world who actually really love research and I admit that I am one of them.  But it’s not just about the research, it’s about research leading to and grounding action. It’s been a great month for that type of research in the area of women’s entrepreneurship.  Just last week alone we had the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women Leadership Academy , bringing together the women and men who have created educational programs around the world to advance economic development through women’s entrepreneurship.   This program has already reached 2,000 women.  It was a thrill to talk with so many people about ...

Google Answers: Leadership web-site categories
Hello, Thanks for an interesting -- and quite a challenging question. Challenging not because of a lack of material on 'leadership', but quite the opposite. There's so much activity out there that culling it down to a representative batch and putting it into categories is...well...a challenge. I've provided the best examples I could find of leadership programs, activities, training, and philosophies and presented them below. I went for a mix of the national/international well-known, along with less familiar, local level community programs. The headings I provided did not come from any ...
Google Answers: Gender differences in work satisfaction
quadtwo-ga, The title of your question, Gender differences in work satisfaction, might be answerable, as workplace surveys on this topic probably exist. But the question itself -- 3 studies of gender differences in satisfaction among the leaders of Fortune 500 companies -- probably is not answerable. C-level executives rarely participate in surveys -- they have other things to keep them busy. Finding 3 such surveys among top leaders seems a big stretch to me. Please consider re-phrasing the scope of your query to make it more likely to receive an answer. Thanks, pafalafa-ga Clarification of Question by quadtwo-ga ...
