In 2017, everywhere we turn, we are presented with the undeniable power of women — at protests, town halls, and political events across the country. Despite so many differences — age, race, socioeconomic background — we have united around a common cause. And no one can slow us down.
Today, on International Women’s Day, we celebrate the power of women by featuring 12 female leaders from around the world. Women Deliver, a leading global advocate for the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women, asked these celebrated change-makers what it takes to be a woman in leadership. They were generous with insightful advice for the next generation of women leaders.
From the former Second Lady of the United States to the Senegalese Minister of Health, these 12 women prove that you should never underestimate the power of women.
