Denmark Elects First Female Prime Minister

Denmark just elected its first female Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt . Thorning-Schmidt leader of the Danish Social Democrats ended the far right’s 10 year lock on the Danish government. She led her party (a four party coalition actually) to victory by capturing 89 seats in Denmark’s 179-seat parliament effectively bringing to an end 10 years of center-right rule.

Just one more lady out there doing her thing an inspiring more young women around the world to get up and start doing rather than just talking.

Congrats to her and to the Danish people!

I think Beyoncé’s song Run The World is appropriate don’t you?
