What Do Countries With The Best Coronavirus Responses Have In Common? - Women Leaders

The Divine Feminine energies are being expressed more and more in our world. Everywhere you look, you can feel the effects of these energies from the subtle to the strong. Today, you can see the evidence when you ask – What Do Countries With The Best Coronavirus Responses Have In Common? The answer, according to Forbes, is Women Leaders.

And I totally agree. Over the years, there has been a return of the Divine Feminine. I see its influence as subtle as women with stronger presence; for example in pop culture. Noticed the change from an all male cast to the all female cast of Ghostbusters? In the past, this would be unheard of.

And today, we have the women leaders who are stepping up and showing the world that they can manage a nationwide crisis like the pandemic. And they are not leaders of any small country. They are proving that they have what it takes to be a true leader.

So, it is time the whole world watches, and learns.


Who Are The Women Political Leaders Showing The Way?

“The true test of leadership is how well you function in a crisis.” – Brian Tracy

#leader #leadership #crisis #motivationalquote

See the above quote by Brian Tracy? I find it to be true. When I was in previous jobs at top management positions, I could see the true leaders among the team emerge during a crisis.

And today, we see them during this coronavirus crisis. They are:

  1. Angela Merkel, Chancellor, Germany
  2. Tsai Ing-Wen, President, Taiwan
  3. Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister, New Zealand
  4. Katrín Jakobsdóttir, Prime Minister, Iceland
  5. Sanna Marin, Prime Minister, Finland
  6. Erna Solberg, Prime Minister, Norway

Who is Angela Merkel?

Angela Merkel is the Chancellor of Germany. She has been since 2005. It should be noted that she is the country’s first female chancellor.

It is interesting to note that she has been seen as the de facto leader of the European Union. This makes her the most powerful woman in the world. And some have said that she is the leader of the free world.

How Did She Respond To The Coronavirus Crisis?

When coronavirus cases started to appear in Europe, Angela Merkel was a pillar of strength. Early on, she stood firm, and she made it clear to all her people that this is a serious situation. In a calm manner, so as not to start a panic, she predicted that infection could reach 70% of the population.

She took the pandemic seriously, and made sure that testing is done immediately for her people. Germany’s number of new coronavirus infections and deaths are far below her European neighbors. As a result, they are starting to loosen the restrictions soon.


Who is Tsai Ing-Wen?

Tsai Ing-wen is the first woman to be elected as the president of Taiwan since 20 May 2016. This makes her the seventh president under the 1947 Constitution, and the second president from the Democratic Progressive Party.

She is a politician and academic. An interesting trivia is that she is the first president who has never held an elected executive post before presidency. And she is the first to be popularly elected without having to serve as the Mayor of Taipei.

How Did She Respond To The Coronavirus Crisis?

Tsai Ing-wen and her team were the first and the fastest to react to the coronavirus crisis. When the new illness was mentioned, she quickly introduced 124 measures to block the spread.

One of the reasons why they were so efficient with the response was also attributed to preparedness due to the previous SARS crisis. They learned from past experience to take the situation seriously.

To her credit, Taiwan did not have to implement lock downs, unlike other countries. And even more to her credit, they have even sent 10 million face masks to the United States and Europe.

Taiwan has been praised by many as one of the world’s best responses to this crisis.


Who is Jacinda Ardern?

When Jacinda Ardern became Prime Minister of New Zealand, she became the youngest female head of government. This was because she achieved office at a young age of 37.

She has served this role, and the role of Leader of the Labour Party, since 2017. Yet, she has described herself as a social democrat, and a progressive.

How Did She Respond To The Coronavirus Crisis?

On April 27 2020, Jacinda Ardern announced that the coronavirus has been eliminated in the country. And that is no surprise. She did an excellent job keeping her people safe.

She implemented lock down from the start. She was transparent, and explained the rationale for the maximum level of alert that was set.

Where other countries were planning to lift restrictions, she added to them. For example, all New Zealanders were quarantined at designated locations for 14 days.

My brother had a video chat with a New Zealand friend. And he told my brother how strict the lock down was. There was a point when his family ran out of food. Thankfully, the neighbors kindly helped, and sold them some food.

Jacinda Ardern eventually banned foreigners from entering the country. It is this decisiveness that saved the New Zealand from this crisis.


Who is Katrín Jakobsdóttir?

Katrín Jakobsdóttir is the Prime Minister of Iceland since 2017. She has been a member of the Althing for the Reykjavik North constituency since 2007.

Previously, she was Iceland’s Minister of Education, Science and Culture, and of Nordic Co-operation from 2009 to 2013.

How Did She Respond To The Coronavirus Crisis?

One of the best initiative, and the most compassionate, Katrín Jakobsdóttir did was to offer free coronavirus testing for all its citizens. I heard from one of my students that his wife, who is doing coronavirusing testing in a Singapore hospital, told him the tests are expensive. So, it is really good that all the people in Iceland get tested for free.

Many countries are still having limited testing. And that is not good. Due to the extensive testing, and a thorough tracking system, Iceland did not have to lock down.


Who is Sanna Marin?

Sanna Marin became the Prime Minister of Finland in 2019. At that time, she held the title of being the world’s youngest head of state.

She is a social democrat. The Social Democratic Party selected her as their candidate for Prime Minister on 8 December 2019. She became the world youngest serving state leader when she became Prime Minister at the young age of 34.

How Did She Respond To The Coronavirus Crisis?

At such a young age, Sanna Marin is a millennial, and she used strategies of that generation to respond to the pandemic. Realizing that not everyone read the press, she had social media influencers spread fact-based information to battle the coronavirus crisis.


Who is Erna Solberg?

Erna Solberg has been the leader of the Conservative Party since 2004. And she took the mantle of the Prime Minister of Norway since 2013. With her firm way of running the country, she has earned the nickname – Iron Erna.

She is the 28th Prime Minister of Norway. And the second female to hold that position in the country.

How Did She Respond To The Coronavirus Crisis?

I found it strange that she was nicknamed Iron Erna. This was because her approach to the crisis was caring. And some may even say sweet.

Her innovative idea was to hold dedicated press conference on television, where she would speak to her country’s children. No adults were allowed. And she took her time patiently responding to the kids’ questions from all over the country.

One of her key points was to take time and explain why it was all right for anyone to feel scared during the coronavirus crisis. Erna’s way of managing the situation was awe inspiring.


What Is The Divine Feminine Energy?

At the start of this article, I mentioned the Divine Feminine energy. I believe the force is re-emerging. In the past, it was hidden. Perhaps even lost in a world rife with masculine energy.

Some say the Divine Feminine began to return in 2012 as stated in the Mayan Prophecy. I felt the energy re-asserting itself since 2000. But the important point is not. It is essential to know that it is here. Now.

So, what is this Divine Feminine energy?

Yin and Yang
Yin and Yang

Think of the Yin and Yang. The male energy is the yang. The female energy is yin. They exist in everything. And they exist together.

There are yin and yang energies in all things. They also exist within us.

The energies must be in balance. When one energy is overwhelming the other, the entity suffers. Just like how our world had too much yang energy for a long time. And we have not been doing well.

The Divine Feminine energy is the yin part of the universal force. It is here today to bring balance back to our world.


What Do Countries With The Best Coronavirus Responses Have In Common? Women Leaders – My Thoughts

For a long time, the masculine energy has asserted its authority on this world. Now, the Divine Feminine energy is here to return the yin-yang balance. And the women leaders mentioned in today’s story proved how beneficial the balance can be.

Their leadership styles may be different. And it is important to note that they work. And since they do, should we not embrace it? Should we not choose to have more of such leadership, of such feminine energy?
