What about great women? Now the theory is irrelevant. Maybe in that century great man theory was relevant but women are leaders now and they do a great job at it. We had Margret Thatcher as our Priminister which just shows women as leaders and I do not believe that great man theory of leadership is relevant in today's society. Jobs are also not passed down generations anymore. Although families can influence what their children do, our society now gives even children with a poor background the chance to go to University, excel and be leaders. Everyone had as much chance as each other today and there is no great man theory. It is just a great theory of leadership that we need and have.
