Meet the Mayors of the World’s Women

Henrietta Racker, Cologne, Germany

“Even some men said that now it’s time for Cologne to have a female mayor, and the voters agreed. But the most important point is that you vote for the personality of a candidate. My gender does not determine my style as much as you think, although there are some specific female features. As a woman, you learn to be a good listener, identify people’s attitudes and bring different parties to the table without losing anyone.
