This title was first published in 2000: Linehan (management, Cork Institute of Technology) studies 50 European senior female managers in a variety of organizations who have made at least one career move across national borders. She compares the careers of these women with a number of theoretical explanations for the relative dearth of women in these positions. She finds that many of the problems facing domestic female managers also face international managers specifically, assumptions that management skills and organizational commitment are societally associated with masculinity.
