Shaping Social Justice Leadership: Insights of Women Educators Worldwide
Lyman, Linda L.; Strachan, Jane; Lazaridou, Angeliki
Rowman & Littlefield Education
"Shaping Social Justice Leadership: Insights of Women Educators Worldwide" contains evocative portraits of twenty-three women educators and leaders from around the world whose actions are shaping social justice leadership. Woven from words of their own narratives, the women's voices lift off the page into readers' hearts and minds to inspire and inform. Representing fourteen countries, these members of "Women Leading Education Across the Continents" (WLE) portray the complexity of twenty-first-century leadership. The variety of continents, countries, personal backgrounds, professional positions, and ages of those who contributed narratives give the book credibility. The portraits are framed with relevant scholarship and grouped thematically. Each carefully crafted portrait highlights an aspect of a chapter theme, followed by practical insights. The chapters develop a range of cultural comparisons, illustrate imperatives for social justice leadership, and examine values, skills, resilience, leadership pathways and actions. The authors invite all educators--both women and men--to shape social justice leadership through collective efforts around the globe that create new possibilities for a more just world.
