Abstract

Gender equality is an issue that is currently being promoted at the workplace, but still, many women are underrepresented as leaders. To be a leader is not an easy task, nor is it a comfortable position as it comes with the stigma that this is meant for men because of patriarchal perception. This paper discusses the women academic leaders’ experience in higher education institutions and how they are perceived, especially from their male counterparts. In addition, there are discussions on the missing parameters projected in this research area. Moreover, most of the past studies’ population focused on the private sector and less on higher education institutions, specifically in public higher education institutions. Hence, this study discusses the women academics' dominant traits in public higher education institutions deemed suitable for leadership positions.
