Women prime minister in the world

fenimism leadership


Female leadership it has been questioned countless times throughout history. I wish I could say that period is over but I would be lying. There are still concerns about women’s leadership. To prove that, on the contrary, women have managed to honor their positions whenever they have the opportunity, we have prepared a list with some emblematic examples.

Angela Merkel (b. July 17, 1954) he is one of the most influential politicians of the moment. Her professional career has been followed and appreciated by the whole world, so in 2009 she was named by Forbes – the strongest woman in the world.

Does this title suit you? Her professional career tells us yes: during her term, 2 presidents of Russia, 3 of America, 5 of Great Britain and 4 of France have changed. Meanwhile, Angela Merkel has remained and demonstrated how strong a woman is, especially when she is determined to fight to assert herself and get what she wants. There were times when her authority was questioned, but she overcame it.

For example, at one of their meetings, Vladimir Putin brought a Labrador, knowing very well the Prime Minister’s fear of dogs. In another context, Silvio Berlusconi treated her presence with indifference, talking on the phone for 15 minutes. Such situations motivated her to demonstrate her potential and built the image of the strong, emancipated woman we all see today.

We can only be proud of such a representative in the difficult, male-dominated world of international politics. Her patient, but determined nature when needed has influenced many of the social and cultural movements that countless populations have experienced. Angela Merkel managed to make herself understood using empathy and stability, trying to be part of the citizenry and bringing the sensitivity of personal feelings in her political statements. After a four-term term, he decided it was time to take a step back and enjoy his personal life more, a decision that was regretted but respected by the German people.

There are other iconic female figures in the political world that we can be proud of Benazir Bhutto (b. 21 Jun. 1953 – d. 27 Dec. 2007). He has served as Pakistan’s prime minister twice, in his 11th and 13th terms. She is known both for her political actions and for her special beauty. She is said to have been the most beautiful woman prime minister of all time; Of course, beauty is subjective, but everyone recognizes it when they see it. In addition, Benazir Bhutto was the first woman to lead a democratic political party in a Muslim country. This implies strength of character, strength to overcome difficulties, but also the lack of confidence that some men showed towards her.

In addition to having a headline first, she is also known to be, at only 35 years old, the youngest elected politician in Islamic culture, the youngest Prime Minister and the youngest woman ever elected Prime Minister. Awesome, isn’t it? Another proof of the impressive female achievements over time, in different cultures.

Theresa May (b. Oct. 1, 1956), also known as Lady May was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, as well as the leader of the Conservative Party between 2016 and 2019. She also did not have a smooth journey, without significant obstacles: at one point in her career, there were people who wanted to resign to the Prime Minister, following a failure. But she also motivates us by choosing to continue her struggle, not to give up.

Milka Planinc (b. Nov. 21, 1924 – d. Oct. 7, 2010) she was the first woman Prime Minister in a communist country. He held the leading position in the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia for 4 years, in which he distinguished himself by reducing the country’s debts and preparing for a prosperous future. Milka Planinc came with experience in this type of political context because in the 1970s she led the Communist Party of Croatia. He was a strong and determined character, who took care of making the necessary decisions, and not outlining a popular image.

Elisabeth Domitien (b. 1925 – d. 26 Apr. 2005) is recognized under the title of alone. She was one woman Prime Minister for the Central African Republic. However, her political career ended after a few hours in detention, but Elisabeth did not change her values, opinions and political inclinations, supporting her opinions in any context.

Golda MeirIndira GandhiMargaret ThatcherHelle Thorning SchmidtYulia TymoshenkoMaria de Louders Pintasilgo and many other women have been able to sustain female leadership through outstanding performance and the combination of specifically feminine sensitivity with strong perseverance and ambition. Courage and determination were not lacking during the tenures of these special women, as may be believed in their early days. Cultural diversity has not been an issue, but it has united women everywhere, creating a general image of solidarity for women’s potential.
