As of today, less than 6% of the heads of government globally are women. Yet, as we look at how the world is fairing with the immediate COVID-19 response, we recognize the power of feminist leadership, and acknowledge the need for more of it. Through leadership lessons from Africa and Ireland’s first female heads of states, we will unpack ‘feminist leadership’, look at the critical role of women in policymaking, and attempt to understand the challenges women face in the fight to create a more equitable and just world. How has the urgency of action needed for the Covid-19 response impacted our ability to focus on the climate agenda and development in the African context? How do female leaders deal with the demands of pressing global issues? Does women’s leadership differ from leadership of male leaders?
