dc.description.abstract The literature study shows that female teachers are under-represented because they do not apply for promotion posts at high schools. Internal factors that are seen as barriers for female teachers are examined. These factors include: lack of self-confidence, low self-image, fear of success, lack of aspiration and the Cinderella syndrome. The role played by traditional and stereotyped beliefs in female teachers' withdrawal from management activities is also considered. External factors that are seen to inhibit female teachers from applying for promotion posts are discussed. These factors include: filtering techniques, tokenism and marginality, mentoring and role modeling, networking, sponsoring and family constraints. Empirical research has also been conducted by means of a questionnaire. Conclusions have been drawn and recommendations made. en
