Second, as we saw earlier, there may be different patterns of leadership linked with men and women. Some have argued that women may have leadership styles that are more nurturing, caring and sensitive. They look more to relationships. Men are said to look to task. However, there is a lot of debate about this. We can find plenty of examples of nurturing men and task-oriented women. Any contrasts between the style of men and women may be down to the situation. In management, for example, women are more likely to be in positions of authority in people-oriented sectors – so this aspect of style is likely to be emphasized.

Stogdill, R. M. (1974) Handbook of Leadership. A survey of theory and research, New York: Free Press. The Handbook was a major reference point concerning the state of play in leadership research and has been subsequently updated by B. M. Bass (1990 – Bass and Stogdill’s Handbook of Leadership: Theory, research and managerial applications, New York: Free Press). However, Stogdill’s earlier work with the Ohio State Leadership Studies was an important attempt to set leadership in an organizational context through proper research. Grint (1997) reproduces a classic paper from 1950 – ‘Leadership, membership and organization’.

One of the questions we hear most often around such lists concerns their apparent ‘maleness’ (e.g. Rosener 1997). When men and women are asked about each others characteristics and leadership qualities, some significant patterns emerge. Both tend to have difficulties in seeing women as leaders. The attributes associated with leadership on these lists are often viewed as male. However, whether the characteristics of leaders can be gendered is questionable. If it is next to impossible to make a list of leadership traits that stands up to questioning, then the same certainly applies to lists of gender specific leadership traits!

Deeper theoretical explorations and the emergence of new empirical challenges, particularly after the end of the Cold War, have brought changes in IR theory. Among the new factors are: multi state political formations (e.g., the European Community), the growing influence of nongovernmental domestic forces in foreign policy decision making, the sudden prominence of non-state international terrorism, the globalization of commerce and communications, the potential of private individuals to influence international behavior (e.g, the Land Mines Treaty) and demands by previously ignored voices of women and minorities seeking to gain a hearing for their perspectives on international behavior.
