Abstract
This article explores physical indeterminacy in respect of women teachers in management development. It uncovers the role of orthodox practice in helping to determine the body and its part in the evaluation of the teacher. It poses questions as to what responses individual women have available to them when having to 'face' up to the fact that they are a semiotic item that is purchased and consumed by management. It argues that feminist post-structuralist theory offers women an escape from the tyranny of care inherent in development practice, but at a price.
