A look at women leading the world as of 2009

So Hilary Clinton didn't become president this year... but Johanna Siguroadottir became Iceland's first female prime minister and Sheikh Hasina Wazed became prime minister of Bangladesh!

But it doesn't stop there. As of February 2009, 31 countries had woman vice presidents or deputy prime ministers. Surely this will encourage all of us women to support each other in becoming a vital part of world leadership. For more information, see the Pink Magazine's article: Meet the Planet's 15 Women World Leaders.

"Leadership is using the greatness in you to achieve and sustain extraordinary outcomes by engaging the greatness in others." - Susan L. Colantuono

Hi Barbara, thank you for including my definition of leadership in this post. I've just published a new book that makes the definition actionable and supports women's career advancement. It's titled - No Ceiling, No Walls: What women haven't been told about leadership from career-start to the corporate boardroom.
