"Concluding Gender and Leadership Problems"
In this class, the final consideration that sums up today's gender and leadership problems will be given by reflecting on the week-long classes. First, you will find that gender and leadership constitute two very effective perspectives to analyze the human social relations. You will understand that the distinction between sex and gender itself is a product of historical and social construction and that we are required to have flexible imaginations which is free from a prejudice to understand the gender problems. Leadership, which is generally imaged on the gender role model, is a concept that leads the society sometimes to prosper and sometimes to decline. As to the same with gender concept, we need to develop a new concept of leadership that makes our social relations more decent and egalitarian.
