As the world continue to evolve with its enormous challenges and prospects, viable leadership skills and power are badly needed to not only stem the tides of global threats of terror but also policies that could influence all walks of human history.
Surprisingly enough, the political limelight is beginning to shift from an "all-male" affair to a much more feminine engagement as female world leaders continue to hit the world's political stage with a big bang! Here is a list of 5 of such personalities who in no doubt could be virtually ruling the world by the end of 2020.
1. Hilary Clinton
Ranked as the second most powerful woman in the world, Hilary Clinton, should she be elected as president of the United States of America in the upcoming November elections would no doubt be the most powerful woman in the world as she would not only be determining the state of America but also that of the entire world!
2. Christine Lagarde
She is best known to be the minister of world's finances as her judgements and fiscal policies either make or break the macroeconomic health of countries under the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
But do you know that Christine Lagarde is eyeing the seat of president in France? Oh yes! she sure is as she was clearly heard stating in a women's conference were herself and Hilary Clinton were guest speakers.
Should she be the president of France by 2020, Madam Lagarde would not just be steering major economic affairs of her country and that of France, but also would she be having a stake in the world's political and financial stage.
3. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala
Mind you, the affairs of women ruling the world would not be an all-white affair! Africa indeed has skilled minds to steer the affairs of the world come 2020. A clear example is former Nigerian finance minister and renowned economist Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.
This economics luminary did not only make it to the shortlist of persons suitable for the job of head of the World Bank...she also has to her credit laudable experience in diagnosing Africa's economic problems and suggesting the most practicable solution to them.
It will be no surprise that Okonjo-Iweala by 2020 would be gaining grounds on the world stage preferably as the head of the African Union.
4. Angela Merkel
She is the world's most powerful woman and Chancellor of Germany. Even though speculations are rife over Angela Merkel stepping down before the end of her third term, most political analysts say the ''Iron Lady'' of Germany could be surprising the world with a firm big come-back!
Especially when the European Union is facing its greatest political and economic crisis following the exiting of its main ally, the United Kingdom, projections are that Merkel in a bid to help stabilize the effect of the Brexit on the European Union not forgetting the migrant crisis befallen the Union could still be holding on her title as most powerful woman till 2020!
5. Theresa May
No one can leave out the fact that UK's next second female prime minister, Theresa May would be rubbing shoulders with world leaders on matters of politics and foreign policy!
Theresa May brings on board fresh leadership to fully transition the United Kindom to an independent state from the European Union.
Others have condemned her for radical approaches to immigration and global terrorism but hey! her conservative views and policies are more likely to place Britain the right pedestal with the world. Just look out for her.
