Critical Review Article
We have a 5-7 page critical review article due in each unit. The critical review article has two parts:
• Read all the articles in Women and Leadership, and Through the Labyrinth, and write your critical review essay.
• Choose one of the women leaders listed in that unit and search and read her biography. Write a brief biography of that leader and apply what you have learned in the unit to that particular leader. Conclude your paper as a whole. So, your outline will be as below:
