ABSTRACT
This paper examines the role of power as conceptualized, understood, and practiced by women in educational leadership. Based on the need to take seriously the need for a "feminist reconstruction of the concept of leadership" (Blackmore, 1990), this paper draws on interviews with five elite leaders to demonstrate the important positive role power can play Being willing to understand the power we have and to use it ethically and wisely may be one way to move beyond essentializing homogenizing, or polarizing approaches to gender and educational leadership.
