Strong Female Lead: Lessons From Women In Power (Hardback)Arwa Mahdawi (author)
A timely investigation into female political leadership featuring contributions from Madeleine Albright, Mary Robinson and other key figures that asks why women in power are providing the strongest and most capable governance in the contemporary world.
Women have been taught to 'lean in' and act like men to get ahead. But as the financial, environmental, and social systems crumble, isn't it time we had a different plan?
The first two decades of the twenty-first century have seen financial collapse, a global pandemic, the devastation of our environment and the disintegration of democracies. But while some at the top are telling us 'it is what it is', there's a new generation of leaders showing the world how to be better. They're building trust, investing wisely and acting decisively. And they've got one thing in common.
In Strong Female Lead, Arwa Mahdawi investigates the qualities demonstrated by female leaders who show us how it's done, including original research and interviews with Madeleine Albright, Mary Robinson, Audrey Tang and many others. Above all, she asks the question: What can women in power teach all of us about leadership?
