The power of women in politics is a soft power", said Kosovo's first-ever female President, Atifete Jahjaga.

Justina Mutale has gone ahead to reveal that power, by writing a book that chronicles the leadership journey and stories of iconic female world leaders through the ages. The book hit No.1 bestseller on Amazon's top 100 books on Political Leadership on its first day of release.

"This book is making a timely debut at a significant moment in world history… a time in which issues of gender parity, and the empowerment of women, are taking their pride of place in global discourse", says Senator Donzella J. James, Senate of the State of Georgia, USA.

Despite growing numbers of female world leaders and changing mind-sets, leadership continues to be dominated by men.  In her book, Justina Mutale argues that throughout history we have seen many powerful women across the world excel in leadership and demonstrate key characteristics that, if emulated and embraced, have the power to fundamentally change society for the better.  Within her new book, "The Art of Iconic Leadership", Justina delves into the past and present of iconic women to inspire the trailblazing leaders of the future and implore them to harness opportunities for global change.

"This book is my gift to the next generation woman, to every young woman and every girl.  A gift to inspire their leadership journey and to let them know that it is possible to lead as a female", say Justina Mutale 

Justina's specialist knowledge regarding the strategies to excel as a female leader is evident from her distinctive track record.  Justina is a seasoned professional speaker, delegate, event convenor, mentor and leadership coach. She discusses her own first-hand experiences in the book, both the successes and challenges, to motivate readers.  With this in mind, proceeds from the book go to the Scholarship Fund at the Justina Mutale Foundation to help disadvantaged you women and girls from rural communities in Africa access tertiary education across the globe.

Within the book, which pulls together politics, gender, economy, strategy, leadership and geo-politics, Justina has identified a number of different characteristics, many of these soft skills, that she believes are fundamental for effective leadership and have been consistently exhibited by female leaders across history, including courage, compassion, resilience and purpose. She also delves into how millennials are leading differently, reflecting on Jacinda Ardern's impressive success to date.

"The entry of this book into the global literary market is both welcome and necessary… it plays its part in an enduring legacy to inspire women and girls this century and beyond", Says Baroness Sandip K. Verma, Chair of UN Women UK & Member of The House of Lords.

To demonstrate the power of these characteristics she showcases key female leaders in history, bringing the achievements of women across the world to the fore to show just what is possible with women at the helm. Justina recounts the reign of Catherine the Great of Russia and how she exercised her creativity to bring innovation like no other. Justina also discusses Queen Elizabeth II and the successful leadership characteristics she has embodied throughout her reign, including astute emotional intelligence.  The book has a global focus and includes many women outside of the western world that perhaps readers may not have heard of, including Nkosazana Clairice Dlamini-Zuma, the first ever woman to lead the African Union Commission.  She is also the first ever woman to present herself as a presidential candidate in South Africa.

It is clear that the coronavirus pandemic has proved the effectiveness of female leadership in times of crisis, and it is essential this recognition is not lost.  Justina argues that female leaders are infinitely capable and flourish given the same opportunities as their male counterparts. The Art of Iconic Leadership is the perfect read for anyone seeking a comprehensive guide to the power of secrets of female world leaders. It is an ideal read for any aspiring female leader keen to learn about the past and the present, so they can be prepared to be the future and command real change.

The book is available at Amazon, bookstores, airports, and E-book platforms, as well as some libraries and universities around the world.
