My wife argued that global women leaders only tell an aspect of the story. She talked about everyday women that lead daily in ‘small’ ways. The single mother who is working hard to raise her kids, the sex worker that’s trying to make ends meet or the professional woman that is trying to make her marriage work. They may not be globally recognized, but they lead nonetheless.
I can’t deny a good argument. My girl has a point.
It’s easy to forget the ‘pockets’ of leadership activities that form the critical mass that moves society forward. These women may not be global power brokers, run national budgets or conglomerates, but the soccer mum’s son may become your next president.
To the women in this category, I recognize your leadership. Your input and impact cannot be ignored. I celebrate YOU!
