Women as a Leader in School

Ahmad Esa, Leong Choy Peng

Sex differences in humans have been studied in a variety of fields. It is known long ago leadership is perceived as being masculine and that puts women into a disadvantage position regardless of their capabilities. Research too suggests that tall individuals have an advantage over short individuals in terms of status, prestige, and leadership, though it is not clear why. Applying an evolutionary psychology perspective, we predicted that taller individuals are seen as more leader-like because they are perceived to be more dominant, healthy, and intelligent. Being fit and physically imposing were arguably important leadership qualities in ancestral human environmentsperhaps especially for maleswhere being a leader entailed considerable physical risks. Female leaders are always seen only mediated by perceived intelligence. Leadership is perceived as being masculine and as a result, women are less likely to be seen as leaders regardless of their capability. Therefore this put women into a very disadvantage position
