Who is she and who are we? A critical essay on reflexivity in research into the rarity of women executives in accountancy
AbstractThis paper proposes a critical stance on research into the rarity of women at the highest levels of accountancy. The authors aim to unravel the discourses produced on this topic in the accounting literature and question their own experience and perception as scholars building on Bourdieu’s work on reflexivity (Bourdieu & Wacquant, 1992; Bourdieu, 2001, 2003).
