    schema:reviewBody """We hope that the readers of this book will be inspired by the personal stories, disturbed by the realities, encouraged by the recommendations, and challenged to join in addressing and correcting the issues."--Sheila Robertson, From the Preface" "In an extensive and frank exploration, leaders in women's coaching discuss the values women bring to the coaching profession; their quest for equal access; ways career aspirations and motherhood are juggled; how to negotiate contracts; and encounters with homophobia, harassment, and bullying. They also identify the challenges to progress and highlight the essential changes that need to be made." "Taking the Lead will be of interest to sports organizations; leaders and educators; athletes and parents; researchers in sports and gender studies; and politicians and policy makers. Women in leadership roles in business, public service, education, and their communities will find the wisdom contained in Taking the Lead readily transferable to their respective arenas."--Jacket." ;
