This course provides students who have a general interest in leadership with ideas, information, and insights that pertain to women and leadership in particular. It does not intend, directly, to train women to become leaders, or even to become better leaders than they already are. Rather it assumes that knowing about women and leadership - - about power, authority, and influence as they apply to women especially - - will impact how wisely and well leadership is exercised by women and men alike. The course assumes: that historically women have had far less access to leadership roles than have men; that the reasons for this diminished access are as varied as they are complex; that as a matter of equity women should have greater access to leadership roles in the future than they did in the past; and that so far as leadership is concerned, women have challenges that are uniquely theirs.
