Over the past decade, there has been an increasing amount of research on issues in expatriate performance management such as strategy and selection as a result of increasing assignments in international employees due to globalisation. Much of the literature dwells into male expatriates and the spouses of such expatriates, and not female expatriates sent for assignments abroad. While there are few comprehensive literature reviews about women expatriates in general, this paper attempts to gain a deeper understanding of the issue of gender stereotyping on female expatriates. This paper proposes a conceptual model to address new avenues for empirical and theoretical research on bridging the aspects of gender stereotyping and female expatriates.
