Abstract

A number of researchers have provided an overview of the progress of research focusing on gender and educational administration in the twentieth century (Shakeshaft, 1993; 1999). Some cast descriptive studies of representation as an early phase overtaken by later concern with phenomenological and radical perspectives. More recently, a focus on women and equity of representation within the workplace has been attacked as inappropriately essentialising women (Butler, 2004) or as redundant in the light of advances in gender equality (Lumby with Coleman, 2007). This paper reviews the purpose and nature of descriptions of gender representation in educational administration and the links to ideological and power flows. It also charts one international effort to make progress in understanding the current position in representation within the Commonwealth. It explores the significance of the difficulties encountered
