dc.description.abstract Support, based on a literature review, and reflective analysis of interviews with three administrators in rural Alberta, is presented in a plea for a greater visibility of women in school leadership. Women, through their goals, values, commitment, and expertise, have contributed in significant and valuable ways to the education community. While women have been responsible for most of the teaching and a great deal of the informal leadership in the schools, there is overwhelming evidence that their participation in formal roles of school administration has been extremely circumscribed. Continuing statistics and reports indicate that, despite their increased interest and achievements, women are vastly underrepresented in school leadership. The literature review, results of the interviews and personal experience validate women's effective leadership skills and abilities. Barriers which serve to exclude women from leadership are then examined, as are accommodations undertaken to overcome those barriers. Schools, operating as communities of leaders and learners, must assume their responsibility by providing more equitable opportunities in leadership, in curriculum and practice. A greater inclusion of women at all levels of educational leadership is essential in order to effect the rationalization, valuation and integration of women's and men's contributions to society. en
