SLOVAKIA'S Prime Minister Iveta Radičová was among 18 women who jointly received a Woman of the Year award from the US edition of Glamour magazine on November 9.
Radičová met the editor-in-chief of Glamour prior to the gala awards ceremony held at Carnegie Hall in New York City and later attended a business lunch with fellow award recipients Dalia Grybauskaite, president of Latvia, and Jadranka Kosor, prime minister of Croatia.
“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 included political leaders and heads of state from Germany, Switzerland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ireland, Finland, Iceland, Bangladesh, Argentina, Costa Rica, Argentina, Trinidad and Tobago, Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, and Australia.
