“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.
