Rise in Female World Leaders

Share the News

Half-a-century ago it would have been unimaginable to see so many women running the show. But in recent events we are currently living under a record-high number of simultaneous female world leaders.

If Hillary Clinton wins the American presidential election in November, there will be women in charge of five of the leading countries and organisations in the world – the US, the UK, Germany, the IMF and the US Federal Reserve.

That’s three of the world’s biggest economies and two of the most important financial institutions.

This is not including the other 22 women who run countries – in which we include monarchs, presidents and prime ministers.

Having women prime ministers, presidents, secretaries general, chancellors, chairwomen and managing directors also sends a visible message to younger women that they too can fill those slots.

Part of the reason organisations and countries do better with more women is that women manage differently. Women bring to the table certain qualities that men possess less often.

No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half of its citizens. It’s then that our world will really change.
