Drawing from more than 1100 surveys and hundreds of interviews from the Successful Women Project, the contributors of these 13 articles examine how women find success in locales as different as Barbados and Canada. The contributors describe the personal, social, economic, cultural, and organizational constructs of their success in terms of theory and empirical findings of the project, the culture and personal characteristics that seem most likely to produce success, leadership and leadership styles, barriers, social support, mentors and the big picture, as well as country studies for Canada, the US, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and Chile. Particularly interesting are the results from nations thought to be particularly paternalistic, where women nevertheless find niches that will afford them professional and personal success, and other thought to be imbued with equality, where women's expectations are not being met as much as they had hoped.
