Log-in for full text

This chapter seeks to address the lack of academic research into the role of women in co-operative leadership, and surveys the current situation across the global movement, in both the developed and developing worlds. It explores the current literature on women and leadership, and points out that co-operatives offer dual paths to leadership, through participation in operational management or democratic membership structures. The chapter highlights the need for further data collection and research, and notes strategies used by co-operatives in promoting women’s participation, including affiliated women’s organisations and gender mainstreaming activities.
