"This book is a remarkable and much needed volume that documents and celebrates women's experiences in educational leadership. The volume is much more than a collection of women's voices: it is a wonderful chorus. The voices are consistently clear, caring, illuminating, and feminist. Men and women who read this will have a better understanding of women's experiences of leading in education and an increased appreciation for those experiences. Furthermore, women will likely have a deeper understanding of connectedness with other women's experiences, and they could feel affirmed and encouraged to share their own voices. This is an exceptionally exciting book. " — Nancy A. Evers, University of Cincinnati
"I especially liked the fact that the book brings the reader to an understanding of how women (and minorities) may contribute significantly to education by re-shaping leadership roles and educational organizations. The book helps the reader see beyond the limitations of 'the white male system. ' " — Diana G. Pounder, University of Utah
