The overall aim of this volume is to present the research studies carried out in the Middle East and Asia in the fields of culture and gender and their influence on leadership in particular. The cultures and practices of these geographical regions are very much varied and this book, Culture and Gender in Leadership: Perspectives from the Middle East and Asia, brings together analyses of these themes in selected countries of these two regions. The chapter authors use detailed descriptions, case studies and vignettes to speak to the cultural relativism and gender in leadership in these countries and provide a unique and comparative perspective drawn from their own cultures. This volume also contributes to the development of theory and empirical research found in these regions and through the collective efforts presented in this book, attempts to strengthen the body of knowledge and practice in the fields of culture and gender in leadership. As Asia is becoming the engine of economic growth for the world and Arab Spring is opening up new vistas in the Middle East, this book is a must read.

Sex Worker Unionization: Global Developments, Challenges and Possibilities
Sex Worker Unionisation examines the challenges and opportunities offered by unionisation for Sex Workers. Exploring unionisation projects undertaken by Sex Workers in most major economies, this ground-breaking study shows how sex-workers have collectively sought to control and organise their work and working lives by co-determining the wage-effort with their de facto employers. It highlights the range of significant obstacles that have impeded their progress, including owner hostility, state regulation and the sway of radical feminism that is present in many unions. Outlining a more efficacious model for sex worker unionisation based upon combining occupation unionism and social movement unionism, this pioneering and controversial new book offers an important study of business organization in a unique industry.

Unequal Ageing in Europe: Women's Independence and Pensions
While much is known about the situation in the labour market in the form of gender pay and earnings gaps, rather little is understood about their sequel in old age the gender pension gap. Entering the world of pensions may well signal a step backwards as far as women's independence is concerned, particularly in countries where women have earned economic independence in employment and are now being confronted by institutional frameworks presuming, encouraging or even imposing dependence. Unequal Ageing in Europe explores the gender pension gap across the member states of the European Union, plus Iceland and Norway. Employing microdata from the Survey of Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC), along with data from the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE), the authors derive key facts regarding pension inequality between women and men. An intuitive indicator for a pension gender gap is derived and contrasted with equivalent indicators for pay and earnings gaps. The authors explore European diversity in a number of dimensions and benchmark their findings against equivalent findings in the US.

This volume surveys the role women have played in various types of business as owners, co-owners and decision-making managers in European and North American societies since the sixteenth century. Drawing on up-to-date scholarship, it identifies the economic, social, legal and cultural factors that have facilitated or restricted women's participation in business. It pays particular attention to the ways in which gender norms, and their evolution, shaped not only those women's experience of business, but the ways they were perceived by contemporaries, documented in sources and, partly as a consequence, viewed by historians.

Gender and Entrepreneurship in Iran: Microenterprise and the Informal Sector
Iran is estimated to have the third largest informal sector in the MENA region a major source of income for many low-income households whose numbers are growing as sanctions tighten. Gender and Entrepreneurship in Iran provides insight into the role of informal networks in employment creation in Iran from a gender perspective. Drawing upon theories of social capital, social network, and the postcolonial feminist critique of mainstream development, this analysis sheds light on the ways in which poverty and unemployment may be tackled.

Political and Socio-Economic Change in the Middle East and North Africa: Gender Perspectives and Survival Strategies
Political and Socio-Economic Change in the Middle East and North Africa examines the shortcomings of the economic development policies in the region before and after the Arab uprisings. Many MENA countries tried to pursue neoliberal policies to boost economic growth. However, the outcome was associated with rising and disproportionate unemployment among the youth and women. The focal point of the book is the role of gender and the ways in which policies translate into economic outcomes. Particular attention is paid to women's entrepreneurship, especially as owners of small and medium enterprises, which, as the authors argue, can potentially reduce unemployment and poverty for the population as a whole. The book offers perspectives on wholesome policies that take account of issues concerning gender and youth and, thus, contribute to lower unemployment and reduced poverty and inequity.

A Woman's Framework for a Successful Career and Life
Successfully Navigating a Profession is a comprehensive resource for young women trying to figure out how to build a successful career in today's world. Unfortunately, young women navigating the current workforce are faced with career metaphors that can make achieving a successful career tantamount to sending a text message from a rotary phone. While building a satisfying career in today's economy isn't quite as easy as laying on your couch and texting in your American Idol votes, it doesn't have to seem impossible either. This book explains how. Its 2010 women routinely serve on the President's cabinet (President Obama's has five), lead large corporations such as Pepsi and Xerox, and comprise 60 percent of college graduates. The ingredients to the 'secret sauce' of a woman's career aren't so secret anymore. However, few books provide those ingredients in a straightforward, organized way. In this timely work, the authors lay out, one by one, the building blocks for a successful, lifelong career focusing on skills (such as leadership and communication), mentoring, work-life fit, and personal branding. Is this book a cookbook for success of a modern women's career? Probably not; even the most accomplished women don't claim to have followed a formulaic path to success. What Hamerstone and Musser Hough do is help a young woman think about what her satisfying career might really look like and provide a unifying framework for how to get there. Appropriate for a young woman just entering the workforce up through a woman in mid-career (who doesn't have time to read a dozen different books on various narrow career topics), Successfully Navigating a Profession lays out the key elements of a successful career in a concise and logical manner. Those elements include core skills - Leadership, Communication, Negotiation as well as Networking, Mentoring, Career Path Navigation, Work-Life Fit, and Personal Brand. Each topic includes a summary of key research and leading thought on these issues and is infused with examples and commentary from successful women gathered through interviews the authors conducted with women of all ages in corporate, government, and non-for-profit organizations. Most importantly, each chapter answers the 'So What Does this Mean for Me?' question by offering realistic, concrete suggestions for how women can Successfully Navigate a Profession. The authors offer a unique blend of practical and academic experiences that provides the reader with a framework to successfully navigate her career in today's economy.
