What If... Women Ruled the World?

Duration:
25 minutes
First broadcast:
Friday 08 March 2013

Dee Dee Myers, author of Why Women Should Rule the World is the former White House Press Secretary to Bill Clinton. She was the first woman to hold that role and also acted as an advisor on the West Wing TV series - she gives us her personal take on women and power.

Dee Dee looks at the US State Department – it's had three female heads in the last 15 years – how has that changed the culture of the organisation? She also takes a wide-ranging view on the status, responsibilities and realities of women in power around the world.
