FEMALE LEADERS IN THE CURRENT CRISIS
Julia Macchi, 15, Chile
Women do not need to have armor or superpowers to be heroes; all we need is courage. According to a study made by Supriya Garikipanti, of the University of Liverpool, and Uma Kambhampati, of the University of Reading, “Being female-led has provided countries with an advantage in the current crisis.” This is why I decided to paint three of the biggest female leaders today, (from left to right) Angela Merkel, Jacinda Arden, and Tsi Ing-Wen. The three of them are typically criticized because of their gender, either if they have or didn’t have kids if they are single or not, but they are so much more than that. They are more than some nonsense judgment, they are more than the challenges they faced because of their gender; they are strong female governors who managed to get COVID-19 under control significantly better than other leaders. I decided to use strong colors that vibrate with each other to portray feminine strength and courage these women have transmitted to me; and of course, purple to represent feminism, a movement that inspires and is a big part of my mentality.
