Jones & Bartlett Publishers, Apr 21, 2011 - Business & Economics - 336 pages
Explore the gender dimension and expand the dialogue in your classroom through this collection of case studies, empirical studies, and theoretical essays on women's issues in public administration.

This is the first book of its kind written about the female endeavor in public administration from the perspective of female public administrators and academics. Women in Public Administration illuminates women's past and emerging challenges, in a predominantly male based public sector. Your students will gain a clear understanding of how women administrators have been affected by male dominated labor markets, ethics and law, management, financial institutions, and public service. This book extends beyond the existing works in the field by furthering the discussion and bridging the gender gap in public administration theory. It is a must have addition to Introduction to Public Administration, Ethics, Women in Politics, Gender Studies or Diversity classes.
