WGBH News analyst Charlie Sennott was on Boston Public Radio Monday, leveling praise onto female leaders of the world for their handling of the coronavirus crisis.
The GroundTruth project CEO piggybacked on comments made this weekend by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who spoke to what Sennott described as an "unusual moment for leaders who are women in the world.”
"In New Zealand, Germany, Taiwan, Finland, women are heading those countries and doing a fantastic job,” he said.
Sennott also pointed to an article in this weekend’s New York Times that credited women for working the bulk of essential health sector jobs during the ongoing pandemic.
"It was about ICU nurses, and it was about healthcare providers, and that the preponderance of the essential services... when you look at the real online, hands-on experts who are dealing with this as nurses– these are predominantly women,” he said. “It is another way in which we see this kind of heroic streak."
