Gender and Education – Towards New Strategies of Leadership and Power is the second publication of the “Women Leading Education” (WLE) Network. It presents the proceedings from the Second International Conference held in 2009 at the University of Augsburg in Germany. Invited researchers and practitioners from a growing number of countries throughout the world discussed the issues facing women in basic and higher education, clarified understanding, and determined the means by which they could most effectively provide increasing illumination for this critical aspect of social justice. Along with the University of Augsburg, the Women’s Special Interest Group (SIG) of the University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA), the American Association of School Administrators
(AASA), Cardinal Stritch University in Milwaukee/USA, and the Duquesne University in Pittsburg/USA provided generous support for this conference.
