Madsen SR. On becoming a woman leader : learning from the experiences of university presidents. Vol 1st. San Francisco, CA: Jossey-Bass; 2008.

"Many lament the dearth of women in senior leadership positions. Madsen's research on women university presidents provides practical insights into how they evolved into those roles.
