- Concrete Examples
Women are dramatically underrepresented in politics. In the nearly 200 countries in the United Nations, fewer than 60 women hold positions of high executive power. Former Australian prime minister Julia Gillard and economist Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala interview women leaders – including Hillary Clinton, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Theresa May – about topics ranging from media-shaming for wearing the same pantsuit twice to confronting gender-based violence. The authors support a collective movement to create a better, more empowered world for four billion girls and women.
