About the Authors
  • This compelling volume considers three significant modern developments: the ever-changing role of women in society; a significant and growing dissatisfaction with current dominant understandings of corporate governance, corporate law and corporate theory; and the increasing concern to establish sustainable business models globally. A range of female scholars from across the globe and from different disciplines interconnect these ideas in this unique collection of new and thought-provoking essays. Readers are led through a carefully planned enquiry focussing initially on female activism and the corporation, secondly on liberal attempts to include women in business leadership and, finally, on critiquing the modern focus on women as a 'fix' for ethical and unsustainable business practises which currently dominates the corporate world. This collection presents a fresh perspective on what changes are needed to create the sustainable corporation and the potential role of women as influencers or as agents for these changes.

    • Connects feminist experience with corporate law and theory and sustainability, discussing issues such as female community activism, female business leadership and legal attempts to include women in decision-making in corporations
    • Pushes the boundaries of current thinking in corporate governance ideas and challenges the increasingly gendered approaches to questions of corporate ethics to present a positive connection between these issues and sustainability
    • An overarching emphasis on sustainability and how to create more sustainable corporate activity leading to new ways of thinking about these issues
