Leadership and Women in the World

Leadership is an attitude influencing other people to achieve a goal with a strong vision and mission. When talking about leadership, many people think that leadership is identical to men. In fact, if we examine further, women also have a leadership spirit. Leadership and women can be a natural thing that be related each other.

Women have the ability that is not much different from their expertise in giving direction, in speech or beretorics or even giving ideas, just like men. However, the issue of gender inequality is a very complex and never-ending issue considered a problem.

Until now, differences in the position of women and men can still be found, including in government, and also in private institutions. Especially in terms of leadership, women are still below the number of men who act as leaders.

Basically, everyone can be a leader. Not all women are weak. Women are like a sturdy building and are a strong structural foundation. This can be seen from its role in community life, in consumer development not only as a development process.

It's sad when we look at it from a different perspective and consider women as weak people who can't afford to be leaders. In fact, there have been many facts about the role of a traditional woman as a "reserve". For example, when many women in the world who are underage are required to get married without compulsory education.

Generally, people who still underestimate women's leadership are traditional and rural communities. However, the growing age, the existence of women began to be valued and equated even though there are still many pros and cons.

An example of a woman who succeeded in proving women to be leaders in world history is Isabel Martínez de Perón who was president of Argentina, Angela Merkel as Chancellor of Germany, Julia Gillard as Prime Minister of Australia, Vigdís Finnbogadóttir president of Iceland, Agatha Barbara president Malta, Elisabeth Kopp as Member The Swiss Federal Council, Yingluck Shinawatra as the Prime Minister of Thailand, Violeta Chamorro the president of Nicaragua, and many others.

This fact certainly means that the role of women in leadership is not a strange thing. In terms of gender equality, this can be interpreted that with the similarity of conditions of men and women in obtaining their rights as social or human beings.

Leadership and women have become commonplace. This is expected to be able to play a role and participate in all activities such as politics, economy, social, culture, education and similarities in enjoying development.

With the creation of the role of women in the opportunity to play a role as leadership can have a positive impact, namely the issue of gender equality is characterized by the absence of differences (discrimination) between women and men. Thus women and men have equal opportunities or access to leadership.

It was marked by women who were able to give a voice, participate in the development of a better country. Of course this is a separate policy that has the benefit of equality and fairness from development. This must always be proven that women can progress in leadership.

The meaning of a woman in leadership especially in development is now urgently needed. Leadership and women can be developed in terms of thinking and creation to develop in realizing goals. There is nothing wrong if women become leaders.
