15 years ago, this month, Angela Merkel became the first female Chancellor of Germany and she will step down when her fourth term ends next year.

Whether you agree with her center-right politics or not, she has been an effective leader and is arguably the most powerful woman in the world. Among her many accomplishments, Germany currently has the lowest rate of COVID 19 of all the major countries in Europe.
