Women’s path to leadership through values work in a context of conflict and violence. Kap. 9
MetadataShow full item record
The leadership journey is experienced differently by women around the world. In this chapter, we analyse the stories of women leaders from South Kivu, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Through these stories, we aim to contribute to the knowledge on how women compete and negotiate paths to leadership through values work in a context of conflict and violence. Focusing on education, religious civil society organisations and the fight for women’s rights, the stories reveal that women as actors strategically negotiate and navigate implicit and explicit values in their families, institutions and in the society at large.
