For many centuries, women academics have thrived regardless of the system, the rules, as well as the challenges and barriers in academia. Drawing on a rich array of research literature on leadership, management, and gender studies, and illuminated through semi-true biographies of academics, this chapter provides a strengths-based perspective that can help empower women academics to thrive in academia.
