New book: Fitzgerald, T. and Wilkinson, J. (2010) Travelling towards a  
mirage? Gender, leadership and higher education. Brisbane: Post Pressed.

There can be little doubt that universities benefit from diversity in  
their student and staff population. Yet why do women remain  
under-represented in senior academic leadership roles and in key  
positions along the academic career ladder? Why do women not advance  
at a rate proportional to that of their male peers? How do  
institutional policy and policy discourses influence decisions in  
regard to who occupies senior roles? In this book the authors use the  
metaphor of a mirage to map the current climate in higher education  
and examine whether equity and equality policies and practices have  
had an impact on the participation of women as leaders and managers in  
higher education.

This book will be of interest to those working in the fields of  
educational leadership, gender studies, and higher education as  
researchers, teachers, postgraduate students and practitioners. The  
authors offer a comparative approach to examining and understanding  
how gender and leadership are played out in various institutions of  
higher education across Australia and New Zealand.
