Examining the Leadership Styles in Saudi Arabia: Why Saudi Women Can and Must Help Run the Schools? pdf
The role of women in the position of leadership in Saudi Arabia has limitedly been researched. Studies have shown that women have limitedly represented in the position of leadership in society, particularly in the executive managerial positions. From the research study done, it is apparent that only 15% of women are in the workforce, a clear evident that women are lowly represented in leadership position. Saudi women are assertively seeking for professional career and higher education. However, the patriarchy system embraced in Saudi Arabia has placed women at a greater disadvantaged position. Even though the government has considerably increased the accessibility of higher education to learners, the patriarchy mentality has continued to impede women from participating in various leadership positions. Women in leadership are highly critical in positively influencing student’s learning. Female students who see women in leadership are likely to feel encouraged to work hard to rise to such positions. This study explores the opportunities and obstacles that Saudi women have to pursue managerial positions. Specifically, the study sought to ascertain how inclusion of women in educational, as well as, educational leadership would impact learning of student in Saudi Arabia, in addition to justifying why women can and must run the schools.
