NUNES, Ana Rita  e  CASACA, Sara Falcão. Women facing the challenge of an international career. Sociologia, Problemas e Práticas [online]. 2015, n.77, pp.77-94. ISSN 0873-6529.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7458/SPP2015773890.

This article resulted from a study designed to understand the motivations and experiences of women involved in international mobility processes and the challenges they face, while simultaneously seeking to gauge the gender effect in their experiences. Twenty female managers with international elements in their career paths were interviewed. The persistence of gender stereotypes and the small number of women in leadership positions stand out as references among the obstacles they faced, both before and during the experiences analysed during the project. In addition, in some contexts the women found themselves both isolated and more exposed and visible. Finally, the authors note the centrality the family dimension assumes as a factor that conditions both the mobility decisions taken during a career at international level and its development.

Palavras-chave : gender; management; international career; female expatriates.
