Leading the Academy or Being Led? Hong Kong Women Academics
Aiston, Sarah Jane
Higher Education Research and Development, v33 n1 p59-72 2014
This paper provides a new gender-based analysis of survey data collected on Hong Kong academics in 2008. First, it illustrates the gender differences that exist in the Hong Kong academy. Second, it discusses possible explanations for these differences as informed by the data. And third, it offers a novel argument, again informed by the data, for the importance of addressing these differences, particularly with respect to the issue of women and academic leadership.
