Leadership has been described as the 'process of social influence in which one person is able to enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task'. A definition more inclusive of followers comes from Alan Keith of Genentech who said 'Leadership is ultimately about creating a way for people to contribute to making something extraordinary happen.' It is no longer surprising or incongruous to see a woman as principal of a public high school, manager of a corporate department, dean of a university/college, or anchor on local newscast. Women have breached the barriers to such positions in context with a general relaxation in traditional general-role attitudes as well as changes in public perceptions of what leadership entails. There are ways for both organisations and individuals to support these women, and thus support the progress toward a social structure in which women's leadership is commonplace even in contexts currently defined as masculine. This publication provides the readers with the key information on the said subject in an affordable three-part condensed format.

This user-friendly reference publication offers a quick access to all areas of global women leaders. It presents the state of art information in areas covering a brief biography, their life and time, achievements and leadership qualities of most prominent women leaders of the world.
