"Leadership is a delicate plant": the Concept of Leadership in the American Women's Movement of the Late Nineteenth and Early Twentieth Centuries (Raffaella Baritono)

The essay examines the development of the concept of leadership by the American women's movement of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In a context where women were excluded from citizenship, the concept acquired a meaning very different from the Weberian one of charismatic leadership. Indeed, the movement conceived leadership as an essentially relational and 'non-political' phenomenon which bore numerous similarities to the concept elaborated by the social scientists and management thinkers who sought to identify the distinctive features of a 'true' leadership in the 1920s and 1930s.
