Rural women and leadership have, in recent years, come to be the focus of development initiatives in many countries. To date, however, much of the writing on this topic has leaned more heavily on structure than agency as influencing attainment of leadership. Citing examples from a case study in Northern Ireland, this book gives agency an equal voice to structure, and pursues both as vital, positive elements in leadership development.
