During the Tang dynasty (618–907), changes in political policies, the religious landscape, and gender relations opened the possibility for Daoist women to play an unprecedented role in religious and public life. Women, from imperial princesses to the daughters of commoner families, could be ordained as Daoist priestesses and become religious leaders, teachers, and practitioners in their own right. Some achieved remarkable accomplishments: one wrote and transmitted texts on meditation and inner cultivation; another, a physician, authored a treatise on therapeutic methods, medical theory, and longevity techniques. Priestess-poets composed major works, and talented priestess-artists produced stunning calligraphy. In Gender, Power, and Talent, Jinhua Jia draws on a wealth of previously untapped sources to explain how Daoist priestesses distinguished themselves as a distinct gendered religious and social group. She describes the life journey of priestesses from palace women to abbesses and ordinary practitioners, touching on their varied reasons for entering the Daoist orders, the role of social and religious institutions, forms of spiritual experience, and the relationships between gendered identities and cultural representations. Jia takes the reader inside convents and cloisters, demonstrating how they functioned both as a female space for self-determination and as a public platform for both religious and social spheres. The first comprehensive study of the lives and roles of Daoist priestesses in Tang China, Gender, Power, and Talent restores women to the landscape of Chinese religion and literature and proposes new methodologies for the growing field of gender and religion.

This book analyses the gendered terrain of skilled immigration policies across twelve countries and thirty seven skilled immigration visas. It argues that while skilled immigration policies are often gendered, this outcome is not inevitable and that governments possess considerable scope in policy design.

The Power of Perception: Leadership, Emotional Intelligence and the Gender Divide serves as a practical guide to educate women, men and organizations on the barriers that keep women from fully contributing in the workplace. These include differences in leadership style and emotional intelligence, gender bias and stereotypes, breadwinner and caregiver responsibilities, and differences in gender culture which show up every day at work and home. The Power of Perception also explores significant changes in global demographic trends and how our youngest generations are impacting the workplace. The Power of Perception clearly illustrates the reasons that we don’t see more women leading our global businesses. It has nothing to do with women’s skills and competencies and everything to do with perceptions of women as leaders, as workers, as mothers, and as wives. These perceptions have a significant impact on promotion for many women. Perception is reality—and it’s powerful. The Power of Perception provides personal stories of women’s journeys, real-world examples, and is based on the author’s own research as well as that of many others. Every chapter includes practical, easy-to-apply strategies, summary points, and reflection questions to empower women, men, and organizations to fully leverage talent and diversity.

This collection of articles poses the question: What can gender history add to the traditional narrative of Irish history? How can it help us to understand the ways in which power operated in and flowed through Irish society? It is premised on the assumption that men and women are actors in the creation of their society, influenced by the ideology of the period, but also challenging and resisting the assumptions and beliefs of their era. The articles included in this collection are far-ranging and thematically diverse, united by the common theme of gender. While women play a dominant role in its pages, it makes visible the power and presence of men. Sometimes implicit, sometimes explicit, the history written on these pages is a history of the ways in which women and men constructed, negotiated and made visible the roles, ideas and representations that governed their particular society. In so doing, it provides an alternative reading to the traditional narrative of Irish history. This book focuses mainly on the modern period and includes two articles from outside of Ireland which provides a comparative focus. It also includes a theoretical introductory section on the nature of gender history from three leading Irish historians.
Doing Leadership Differently is essential reading for both established and aspiring executives and managers.

The Australian workforce is amazingly diverse, with men and women bringing a huge range of cultural backgrounds, skills and life experiences to their jobs. But this diversity, with all its potential for cleverness and creativity, is not reflected in the ranks our of senior business and corporate leaders. Amanda Sinclair argues that Australian organisations are clinging to an outdated concept of leadership. We expect our leaders to be a certain type of person-a tough, heterosexual male. Drawing on interviews with senior executives, male and female, she shows convincingly why our faith in this traditional style of leadership is so strong-and misplaced. Doing Leadership Differently is essential reading for both established and aspiring executives and managers. It offers a challenging and original analysis of: why the traditional style of leadership has failed us how men as well as women can benefit from understanding how gender shapes leadership style how to put power and sexuality at the heart of effective leadership ways of widening the pool of Australian leadership talent.

With intelligence and academic talent a focus of national debate, such concepts as diverse classrooms, multiple intelligences, heterogeneous schooling, and learning curves are frequent topics of discussion. Based on the work of Julian C. Stanley and his landmark model for working with gifted youth, Intellectual Talent brings together a distinguished group of authorities to examine the dominant techniques used to educate gifted youth today and the exemplification of those techniques in various university-based programs across the country. From a review of the current research on individual differences and its relevance to intellectual talent, to descriptions of the current knowledge about educating gifted children, this book illustrates how our educational system can enhance gifted youths' academic achievement. Part One of Intellectual Talent examines the political ramifications of emotionally loaded findings about individual differencesdocumenting cases in which findings that contradict prevailing social values are simply ignored. Part Two explores what is known about educating gifted children and why educators sometimes fail to act on that knowledge. Topics include genetic antecedents to human behavior, the underuse of knowledge, proper provisions for gifted students, the use of knowledge, psychometrics, and genius. Intellectual Talent will be of interest to professionals and students of education and psychology, educational researchers and policymakers, parents of gifted children, and anyone concerned with fostering excellence in our nation's schools.

This volume of essays by prominent researchers in Israeli history and society is the first of two interconnected volumes engaging with the concept of 'women's time'. It recounts stories and histories of women, along with other marginalized groups, categories and classes, and places them back into history. The studies in this volume illuminate the complex and multifaceted nature of issues of feminist concern, asking whether the manifestation of women's interests as a class brings women into the public sphere or whether it induces compliance with national interests. 'Women's time' involves resistance to self-evident and often patriarchal truths and knowledge, and, by creating a model for the investigation of other obliterated narratives, serves the well-being of all, in Israel and beyond.

By the medieval period the role of the counsellor had become entrenched in romance literature, drawing on classical antecedents. In this study, Deist examines the politics and historical significance of the concept of counsel in French and German medieval romance literature, especially the works of Chretien de Troyes. The chapters are grouped according to the different types and roles of counsellors, such as daughters, companions in love, mothers, father figures, and by their gender. A detailed study of medieval confidentes and advisors and what they tell us about ideas of power, authority and dominance.
