Women Managers, Leaders and the Media Gaze: Learning from popular culture, autobiographies, broadcast and media press

There is a lacuna of research in management and leadership which critiques gendered media representations and the impact on gendering processes of managers and leaders. This Special Issue of Gender in Management: An International Journal comprises an inaugural collection of papers through which we get to "see" women managers through a media gaze and to learn from research into popular culture through gendered analysis of television, autobiographies and media press. We are delighted to include research papers which convey how gendered media influences, and is influenced by, women's political, public and organizational leadership and how media construct gendered (mis)representations of women leaders and managers.
