Guest: Gwen Young, JD, Director of the Global Women’s Leadership Initiative at the Wilson Center Half of the world’s most populous countries have never had a female head of state. The US is on that list – though the distinction could change next year, with Hillary Clinton and Carly Fiorina are running for President. The lack of women in halls of power is one of the reasons the United States fell in the rankings of countries making most progress to close the gender gap. It’s called the Global Gender Gap Report and The World Economic Forum has been doing it annually for ten years. Gwen Young from the Wilson Center shares her reaction.
