As we reflect on an unprecedented time in our collective history, we must take this opportunity to learn from the experiences of extraordinary women leaders who have paved the way for women to take the helm of the highest leadership positions in the world. Stepping into leadership roles that have both transformed opportunities for women and advanced major policy, these leaders have overcome multiple obstacles in times of crisis.
