Theorising women leaders’ experience in developing economies; caught in the web

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

This paper suggests that current gender theory is inadequate to the task of guiding action to increase equality. It argues that there are ontological, epistemological and axiological challenges which are unresolved in theorising and researching gender and which have resulted in a corrupt discourse. Drawing on interview data from women school principals in South Africa, this paper considers evidence on the orientation of women to gender issues and the strategies adopted by which they attempt to survive or thrive. It explores the current parameters which limit how we might interpret their narratives and the necessity for an overhaul of gender theory
