Gender Leadership Roles and Issues within Cultures After reading Jandt Chapter 10 (“Women, Families, and Children”), examine gender roles and issues within your own culture(s), including differences in status, legal treatment, literacy and education, life expectancy, economics, political participation, and leadership.
Give specific examples, and compare your own culture with others in these areas.

This paper challenges the practice of applying these culturally distinct models to all populations, particularly African-American women executives.
