Leading Women is a collection of essays from female bosses across the education sector, revealing the challenges and attitudes that hinder them
A new anthology, Leading Women, highlights the barriers women continue to face when it comes to leading roles in education. The book is published by specialist executive search firm, Wild Search, and takes inspiration from the life of Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, the first Englishwoman to become a qualified doctor and who later co-founded the first medical school to admit women in the UK. One hundred years after her death it reflects on the challenges she faced in reaching that position; barriers which still resonate with women fighting for leadership positions today.
