39749_Stange_MultimediaWTW_72ppiRGB_150pixWI’m excited that the newly published Multimedia Encyclopedia of Women in Today’s World contains seven entries that I authored, including short biographic pieces on Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and Bahraini businesswoman and Vital Voices Honoree Afnan Al-Zayani, as well as profiles of three great organizations, Kakenya’s School of Excellence (in rural Kenya), Vital Voices Global Partnership and Women for Women International.  This online version of an earlier edition also contains an update of my piece on Women Heads of State.  I wrote these pieces in late 2011, so it’s been quite an interesting experience watching a major work wind its way through the editing and publication process.  It was also wonderful to be able to build on my teaching at American University on women world leaders, and especially engaging to interview my friends and colleagues at Kakenya’s School of Excellence, Vital Voices and Women for Women for the articles.
