We celebrate the fifth volume of the Journal of Women in Educational Leadership with this issue. We appreciate all who have contributed to the journal through their service as reviewers, authors, and subscribers. All are critical to the journal's success. In this issue we feature manuscripts by Sperandio concerning women in Bangladesh, a manuscript by Wallin and Crippen concerning superintendent leadership style, and by Wojtalik, Breckenridge, Gibson Hancox, and Soberhart concerning the effects of childhood themes on women AEs aspirations toward leadership. Koeppe, in Women in History, provides a biography of the last monarch of Hawaii, Queen Liliokalini, and Boatman reflects on twenty years of women's leadership. In Voices in the Field, Danielson and Schulte reflect on their work as academic department chairs. Each contribution enriches our understanding of leadership and the work and roles of women leaders. As always, I welcome your comments related to the journal and the manuscripts presented to you. Send your comments to me at
