Winning over COVID-19 won't be a cakewalk. A strong leader is what the situation demands. Conventionally, men are supposed to be the great leaders with mastery over decision-making process. It is striking obvious that women still don't not enjoy same degree of participation in government bodies. Only 25 per cent of parliamentarians are women and less than 10 per cent of the Heads of the State or Government are women. When scrutinized carefully, the countries with the lowest numbers of cases and deaths are headed by women. Taiwan which is headed by Tsai Ing- wen as its President has discovered less number of COVID-19 positive cases, although being closest to China. New Zealand recently has shown zero COVID-19 patients and has not registered any new cases. PM Jacinda Arden has stated that New Zealand has "won" the fight against widespread community transmission. Other countries like Germany, Norway, Denmark, Ireland, Findland have also managed to lower the tally of cases. When the so-called world leaders resort to blame storming each other just to hide their fallacies, these women leaders have ushered in a new era of positivity. It is true that when given opportunities anyone can become an exemplary leaders, ability should not be judged by gender.
