Female leadership won against coronavirus

I was reading an incredible article by Avivah Wittenberg-Cox on Forbes.

It spoke about the response to the covid-19 pandemic by countries with strong female leadership.

This article is trending and for good reason, it highlights some very impressive stats.

If we compare these numbers on a global scale, they are remarkably impressive, even when accounting for population size and density.

The article is impressive but I wanted to add a few more notes on it (not to take away from the article in the first place… you should go read it.

But this highlights a theme that I’ve spoken about on some podcasts, in casual conversation and something I just generally believe to be true.

There are not enough women in leadership positions — that’s a huge problem.

We’re getting there but we’re not there yet.

But let’s discuss why this matters — not from an equality pov — which is important, but from an efficacy and practical point of vue.

Women approach things differently than men.

Not at everything, but at some things.

This is a good thing.
