Helen Clark has been a world leader for 36 years from first entering parliament in 1982 as a 31-year-old to being Prime Minister of New Zealand for nine years, to serving as Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme for eight years. One of her key focuses throughout this time has been the empowerment of women and she has paved the way for other women to step up and lead.
With a foreword by the Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern, this is a timely and important book. An analysis of Helen's speeches shows that while the position of women has improved over time, this change is very fragile and we need to keep working towards equality for women in many crucial areas. Women, Equality, Power also serves as a celebration of an outstanding leader who continues to strive and work for change.
