A review of the literature examining the nature and process of women in educational administration suggests a qualitatively differentiated approach based upon gender. In order to explore this context and parameters further, a Delphi study has been instigated to focus upon a group of women in positions of educational administration, the initial outcomes of which are discussed in this paper. The research has sought to elaborate the ways in which women Principals in rural New South Wales perceive, conceptualise, and enact educational leadership and school management.
