Women Leading is a fascinating insight into female leadership. After years of male domination in the world's boardrooms, are cracks finally appearing in the glass ceiling? As the dynamics of our work culture change it's women who now hold the key skills to ensure future success in business, but can they contend with the old boy network that's still prominent in many workplaces.
