Global LeadHERS – I just made up that term!

Not that I typically read Vogue magazine, but I was certainly intrigued when I noticed that Michelle Obama was on the cover this month of the popular fashion magazine. Interestingly, I discovered that this is only the second time in history that a first lady has been on the cover of Vogue.

Besides Annie Leibovitz’s great photo of her, the most interesting aspect of the magazine was the four articles on four powerful women – global leaders of today – Michelle Obama, Queen Rania, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and Melinda Gates. It’s had me reflecting on how I have very few female global leader role models in this world who are blazing new paths.

Even these powerhouse women mentioned above are all married to famous, powerful, political and economic global leaders (President, Kings, Billionaires – not really your average guys). Nevertheless, these women are clearly leveraging their positions of power to make the world a better place. It’s impressive, and we need even more role models…so what are waiting for – let’s get started! 😉
