This is the first Special Issue of Gender in Management: An International Journal dedicated to positioning women leaders as part of feminist futures and theorising, and considering their impact on gender equity. Our aims in curating this Special Issue are to contribute to feminist theorising and develop research agendas for women-in-leadership research; consider thecurrent position of women leaders in neoliberal post-feminism and post-feminist research and practice, including the backlash towards women leaders as diluting the feminist cause; and consider the impact women leaders can have on gender equality and feminist theory.
