Through that critique, it makes the case, with feminist scholars on political leadership, that the characteristics that we value in leaders in global politics privilege masculine characteristics and devalue feminine ones, rendering women unqualified by default because they are associated with those devalued feminine characteristics. In addition to making the case that current conceptions of good leadership are gendered, this article critiques the idea of leadership itself through feminist lenses, arguing that it assumes a reactively autonomous concept of human decision-making.
