The Best Kept Secret of the Past 5,000 Years: Women Are Ready for Leadership in Education. Fastback Series, No. 2.
Koontz, Elizabeth Duncan
The contributions of women to American educational leadership from colonial times to the present have been important but often ignored. According to the author, women have historically suffered from prevailing negative attitudes ranging from masculine fear of economic competition to the age-old theories regarding the mental, physical, and emotional competency of women. The author emphasizes that the time has come for education to dispel sexism and to train people for true economic, political, and social equality. (RA)
