Doing Ourselves Wrong: The Prices Women (and The World) Pay For Our Silent Leadership

17 September 2015

The first report produced as part of the W21 History Collection, authored by lecturer in US history at Penn State Abington and 2015 Centre visiting fellow Sharon Holt. Using historical examples from an exceptionally pro-woman Quaker community in Maryland, this essay examines how the epithet “public woman”, accompanied by threats of retaliation and scorn, silenced and discouraged women from assuming strong leadership positions. The essay argues that creating gender balance in public leadership requires creating a public realm in which women leaders are highly visible, not isolated, and not endangered. Download report
