The essays reveal womens perspectives on leadership and the job of president. The pieces explore and record the realities of day-to-day experiences of women presidents striving to achieve important goals for higher education and for themselves. The authors are themselves a special company. Sometimes battleweary, but always unbowed, they bring us an amazing variety of concepts and experiences. They share with us, often in a very personal vein, their answers to perplexing questions: Whats it like to be in charge? How does a woman get there? What does it take to demonstrate staying power? What about a second or third presidency? What happens to personal and family relationships along the way? And possibly most difficult of all, how can the special strengths of being female serve a role in society which has traditionally been seen as male? The thirteen chapters of the volume are indeed an enlightening treat.
