In the United States, Hillary Clinton is preparing for her second run for the presidency, and Janet Yellen is the first woman chair of the Federal Reserve Board, widely regarded as one of the world's most powerful offices.Outside of the United States, women have already reached the highest level of power.Argentina's President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner is attacked for mismanaging the economy, and by banking interests for forcing debt restructuring on her country's creditors, not because she is a woman.The last three decades have yielded a cadre of women leaders even where women otherwise lag far behind in terms of opportunity – for example, South Korean President Park Geun-hye, Ukraine's two-time former prime minister, Yuliya Tymoshenko, and Presidents Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia and Joyce Banda of Malawi.Similarly, African-American leaders sometimes joke wryly about gaining the reins of municipal power just when a city is about to go bankrupt.So are today's women leaders the real deal or just figureheads?
