Dutch development minister Sigrid Kaag praises emerging female leaders

Sigrid Kaag, Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation of the Netherlands, was the celebrated guest in the season finale of Operation Interview, where three "secret" interviewers challenged the Minister with questions about her view of populism, discrimination, and her future career plans. 

Kaag was also asked about her potential interest in leading her party, D66, and in being the first female leader of progressive Netherlands to tackle the polarisation of populism. Kaag suggested that role should be taken on by someone earlier in their political career, and praised emerging female leaders for their bravery in taking on new political challenges.
