Abstract [en]

Women have played important roles in different working areas and have raised their voices in the labor force. Outdoor Education sector is not an exception. More and more female teachers-leaders have dedicated their lives in the reforming process of education in general and in Outdoor Education in specific. This study examines the participation of female teachers-leaders in Outdoor Education sector to see an overview of their achievements and contributions in this field. Eleven outdoor teachers-leaders answered questions displaying the motivation and the enhancement of women’s participation in Outdoor Education sector as leaders. Through semi-structured interviews, the participants revealed their opinions towards their current occupations and their future expectations and promotions as well as the effects of childhood memory on people’s attitudes. Results show optimistic visions for the participation of female teachers-leaders in Outdoor Education sector. The results also exhibit the imbalance of the participation of female teachers-leaders in different levels of Outdoor Education sector. There are more outdoor schoolteachers but less female leaders in outdoor adventurous pursuits. To keep the balance of female teachers-leaders in different levels of Outdoor Education is to create more chances for women to challenge themselves and to give students opportunities to interact with the diversity of outdoor teachers-leaders regardless race, age and gender.
