Why do women take charge in times of crisis?

When the Exeter student journal sent out a call for an article on female leaders I was quick to commit to writing an article on this topic. My supervisor Prof. Michelle Ryan has done some fantastic research on how women often take charge in times of crises and what consequences this might have. As the political situation becomes more challenging in both the UK and the US, we see two women leaders emerging, and the research line on the glass cliff seems more relevant than ever before.
