Women Leaders

The image of the women leader of today is a far cry from what the world had yesterday. I still remember the Imelda Marcos of the Philippines with her expensive toilets and other bathroom vanities- drums of expensive soap, enough to last for several years. Little did she know that later on toilet papers with her face printed on it will become best sellers. I also remember seeing a tape of battery powered Mercedes benz convertible for her grade school grand kids, etc, etc..

Today, the image of women leaders that comes to mind are battle hardened platoon leaders and company commanders, generals and court justices. The difference between then and now is really really huge.
