Wolverton (University of North Texas) presents the stories of nine women presidents of community colleges, colleges, and universities. With one exception, each woman is the first woman to head her institution. While they emphasize different leadership characteristics, they show remarkable unanimity in their beliefs as to which characteristics are the most important. The women discuss the growing opportunities for women in higher education, noting that barriers for women still exist and warning of the potential for backlash against powerful and assertive women. They stress the need for women to balance personal life and career, and to appropriately prepare for leadership. B&w photo portraits of each woman are included.
