In an unprecedented journey which took her into corridors of power around the world, Laura Liswood conducted one-on-one interviews with fifteen women presidents and prime ministers. Using this unique first person material gathered in 1996, Liswood analyzed the obstacles these politicians faced in attaining the highest office in their respective countries, examined whether once in power they were able to further the cause of women in their countries, and assessed the differences between male and female leaders.

Now, Liswood revisits the subject in an updated edition, containing expanded information and new interviews. Never before has there been such a complete document of women as world leaders. Each politician has a riveting - and sometimes surprising - story of her own. Together, with all their cultural diversities, successes and failures, dramas and tragedies, the stories form a stunning collection and an excellent resource for rising women leaders.
