Abstract: The next five years will be significant in international higher education as the baby boomer generation leaves our campuses. What legacy will they leave and how will the next generations manage the ‘leaderist’ turn in universities? This article enters the tight cluster of gender, generation and leadership, and probes how masculine ideologies of achievement, power and recognition can be critiqued and challenged. Recognizing Laura Bates ‘everyday sexism’ project, my piece names the daily structures, stories and scenarios that undermine and minimize women in universities.
