A female U.N. secretary-general would have placed women at the helm of two of the world's three biggest international organizations (France's Christine Lagarde already runs the International Monetary Fund).With so many female leaders, we would have begun to answer the question: What happens when women run the world? According to sociologists, female leaders are of two schools: Queen bees, who are less likely to help other women advance, and righteous women, who make the advancement of other women a priority. Merkel and May have tended to be more like queen bees, while Clinton, Lagarde, Clark, and Georgieva are more like righteous women. To be fair, the first woman leader in a male-dominated culture must often outman the men. Clinton, for example, was the third woman U.S. secretary of state but the first who felt secure enough to be able to champion the cause of women and girls worldwide.Overall, a woman leader's decisions are no more predictable than a male leader's.Women came closer in 2016 than in any other era to reaching that tipping point.
