Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom has been featured on The New York Times list of 11 Most Exceptional Women In 2017. Wallström was chosen for the article run under the NYT’s Saturday Profile section.
“As foreign minister, Margot Wallstrom, who broke free from a violent relationship in her 20s, is challenging assumptions in a traditionally male sphere,” says Kyle Crichton, a senior editor for international news in the London office of The New York Times.
Other women named in the list include Manal al-Sharif (Saudi Arabia), Emma Morano (Italy), Henda Ayari (France), Olive Yang (Myanmar), Asli Erdogan (Turkey), Letizia Battaglia (Italy), Sinta Nuriyah (Indonesia), Yu Xiuhua (China, Alice Schwarzer (Germany), and Maryam Sharif (Pakistan).
