The author talks to 15 women throughout the world who are, or have been, leaders of their country. Each has a story of her own, revealing cultural diversities, successes and failures, dramas and tragedies. In a journey which took her into the corridors of power around the world, Laura Liswood conducted one-to-one interviews with all 15 women world leaders. Using this material, Liswood analyses the obstacles these politicians have faced in attaining high office, examines whether, once in power, they have been able to further the cause of women in their countries, and assesses the differences between male and female leaders.
