Together with 17 other national leaders worldwide, Slovak Prime Minister Iveta Radičová has been awarded a “Woman of the Year 2010” award by the American magazine Glamour. She will receive the award next week in New York during a business trip to the United States, the Aktualne.sk website reported on November 4, citing Radičová's spokesman Rado Baťo.
“In some countries we have had the right to vote for less than 100 years, so the entry of women into political leadership has caused a tsunami,” Glamour quoted Radičová as saying.
Others award winners include leaders and heads of state from Germany, Switzerland, Ireland, Lithuania, Finland, Iceland, India, Croatia, Ukraine, Costa Rica, Argentina, Trinidad and Tobago, Kyrgyzstan and Liberia.
