Macha, Hildegard; Bauer, Quirin J.
Journal of Women in Educational Leadership, v7 n1 p23-32 Jan 2009
In this article, the authors show the perspective on women's leadership in Europe. The authors present the European data on the educational status of girls and women at schools and universities and in academic careers. Data from Germany is presented as an example to provide evidence of some details. First, the authors point out four contradictions for women in the education system and concerning leadership positions. Second, data is discussed and some results of research explaining the data are given. Finally, the authors present a European Program for the educational system to give women more chances: The so called "Gender Mainstreaming Program." (Contains 4 figures.)
