"Some can attribute their accession to authority to decades of political struggle. Others can point to a lifelong commitment to supporting tradition, albeit with a bit of difference in their cases. Some hold power through faith, others through family. Yet one significant element in these 22 leaders is the same: they are all women. Hodgensen and Solheim examine the lives and work of women from Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Europe and the Americas from the 1960s onward, analyzing their political and social impact as politicians, agents of change, and role models. They also provide an analysis of differing theories about women's leadership and feminist theories and describe potential candidates for the US presidency at theoretical and practical levels."
