Women have long been hailed to be affectionate and more accountable beings than men, in spite of the fact that for centuries, they had to succumb to male dominance, in the house, market and political environment.
Today women emancipation was championed by the female movement and all over the world, a part of the shift which has come, is women’s liberation from male oppression. The experience of women emerging from the kitchen cue to the direction cue is remarkable. It would mean so much that the mothering technique was likely to be refurbished for direction advantage.
There are no more self centred strides of dream but the strides of a mother fending to see her community, group or organisation triumph. There are no more prioritised violence but a whole lot of thought into an action before it’s undertaken. There would be plenty of emotional intelligence and connectivity between the leader and follower.
A motherly quality attracts transformation. However this hasn’t been the case, so it remains a fantasy. As women have moved into the leadership arena, they’ve sought to borrow a lot from guys. In a publication, ‘Advances in Psychology Research’, edited by Columbus Alexandra it is noted that in the past women where forced to emulate male traits so as to be effective leaders. In their book ‘Through the Labyrinth: The Truth about how girls become Leaders’, Eagly and Carli notes in the’act masculine camp’ girls are urged to be competitive, confident, powerful, daring and fearless.
The total message they finish basing on’the act masculine camp’, is that, girls lead best by getting male clones. Eagly and Carli, nevertheless, point out, basing on Ann Crittenden’s book’ If you’ve Raised Kids, You Can Handle Anything: Leadership Begins at Home’, the educated parents model of leadership is now fashionable, thus indicating that women embrace skills of parents in direction.
Women are endowed with a uniqueness that permits them to create what Helgensen Sally calls the web of inclusion. In their nurturing nature they’re in a position to cause positive change as leaders and who shouldn’t be lost in the scramble for women’s emancipation. Because in the process of claiming emancipation some feminists have unseemingly throw aside the character of women, that gives them an edge as leaders, that is, the capacity to care, and in so doing, do what’s right in the line of service, rather than serve individualistic aggrandisement.
