It's not having a female leader that counts, it's everyone : The National
Dr Clare Wenham spoke to The National about a new report, "Gender In The Time Of Covid-19: Evaluating National Leadership and Covid-19 Fatalities". The data in this report shows that some female leaders have managed the pandemic well, not because they are women per se, but because they are leading countries which are more likely to elect a woman in the first place.
Countries where “core cultural values reward traits found in women leaders” including a more “collectivist” rather than individualist approach, a long-term view rather than short term, nations with “fewer power disparities” across their society where policies are already in place that help them manage risk better through preparation.
