Abstract

This chapter aims to provide an overview of women’s participation as leaders in higher education (HE) in Malaysia. It draws upon local and international feminist literature and engages with some of the explanatory frameworks that have been used to analyse the absence of women from senior leadership positions in HE in the global academy including the gendered division of labour and greedy institutions. The empirical evidence is from a sample of 36 open-ended questionnaires and a Focus Group with eight women at different career stages in one public Malaysian university.
