1.  Briefly explain the leg

Question description

1.  Briefly explain the legacy, generally speaking, left by the seven past female candidates outlined in the chapter.

2.   Why do you think a higher percentage of men than women have responded that they think the country is ready for a female president?

3.   Mandel argues that it is unlikely that the entire American population will ever be comfortable, at first, with the notion of a female president, no matter when it eventually happens. Why might this be? What do you think needs to happen first in order for the American public to move from a state of widespread willingness to readiness?

4.   Why are there not more women in position to be major contenders in upcoming presidential elections? What combination of qualities does Hillary Rodham Clinton possess, according to Mandel, that make her uniquely qualified at this moment in time?

5.   Mandel argues that female candidates have more legitimacy as potential candidates if they are “outsiders” at first, but that in order to gain credibility as serious contenders they eventually become “insiders”. Explain why this double bind exists, and why it could be a major detriment to a woman’s candidacy. Give an example of when this dilemma may arise.

  Describe the two paradigms of feminism that Heifetz illustrates. Explain how the opposing viewpoints contribute to women’s lack of trust in men.

2.  What are the three social terms that Heifetz suggests to better define the distinction between leadership and authority? Why are these distinctions important?

3.  What is meant by adaptive leadership? Explain how this term is derived from science.

4.  Explain how one can have leadership without authority, and describe the significance Heifetz attaches to this in the chapter.

5.  Describe what Heifetz sees as the consequences for men as the paradigm of gender and leadership unfolds. What key points about men do women often overlook in this dichotomy?
