This chapter introduces China’s unique transitioning cultural, economic, social, and political contexts in which women’s leadership roles and status are being shaped and developed. The emerging trends of women in leadership in both rural and urban areas and in different generations are discussed. Chinese women’s leadership positions in economic and political activities are examined through a comprehensive review of literature and a comparative analysis of past and present impacts of such leadership at individual, organizational, and national levels. The analysis also delves into implications and suggestions in developing women in leadership in China.
