women in academic leadership as vice chancellors

Women administrators in higher education, despite their significant numbers, have been of little concern to researchers. While legislative policies have helped women in higher education, despite these initiatives women in higher education still experience large disparities in salary, promotion and prestige. These indivisible barriers, that often keeps women down are referred to as the glass ceiling.

Gender inequality and lack of women in senior administrative and especially leadership positions is a problem that persists from past many years. Old universities in India even those established before independence have not had a single women vice chancellor. This poses a provoking question that have women not been suitable qualified despite being professors to attain appointment to such positions despite meeting academic qualifications or like corporate sectors there also exists a glass ceiling or a brick wall to prevent women from entering such positions.
