Lagarde on Women in Leadership

At the Women in the World Summit in New York on March 8, International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde spoke to historian Niall Ferguson about the role of women in leadership around the world, saying it might be a safer place if more women were in charge. Men were bigger risk takers than women.

    It is the leadership and the implementation, which is the toughest job. How do you get these policies right to make the reforms that will enable women to have more says in society? Particularly the majority of women in emerging countries that do not read and write? And in developed countries, how do we enforce these laws and empower women and girls to be themselves? Exceptional women such as Mrs Lagarde or Marie Curie should not be the tree that hides the forest.
