Thoughtful, intelligent, and probing--going beyond the stereotypes to get at some of the real issues for and experiences of women who are or could be leaders. . . . A wellspring of information--and inspiration--for women in all fields and at all levels.
--Booklist

What is distinctive about Women of Influence, Women of Vision is the book's presentation of issues.... Astin and Leland show readers how the women in their sample share a passion for justice.... The narrative, at once unsentimental and celebratory, is remarkably affirming.

--Contemporary Psychology

The interview material provides much suggestive data, the chronologies are useful, and the theoretical suggestions stimulating. A worthwhile addition to any library.

--Choice

A book for students, for teachers, for scholars, and for any woman who wants to know how the struggles of individual women came to create what is collectively known in this country as the women's movement.

--Ann W. Richards, former governor of Texas

Astin and Leland go beyond rhetoric and statistical compilations to actual hands-on experiences and accomplishments. . . . What the authors find bodes well for the future.

--Clark Kerr, president emeritus, University of California

The single best book on women and leadership.

--Warren Bennis, distinguished professor of business administration, University of Southern California, and author of Why Leaders Can't Lead and On Becoming a Leader
