Jacinda Ardern

Jacinda Ardern (born 26 July 1980) is a New Zealand politician serving as the 40th and current Prime Minister of New Zealand since 26 October 2017.

Following the massacre of 50 Muslims at two mosques in ChristchurchNZ, Ardern said, "We are a proud nation of more than 200 ethnicities, 160 languages. And amongst that diversity we share common values. And the one that we place the currency on right now is our compassion and support for the community of those directly affected by this tragedy. And secondly, the strongest possible condemnation of the ideology of the people who did this. You may have chosen us – we utterly reject and condemn you."

Her wearing of a hijab in solidarity with the Muslim community resonated with people worldwide.

A week later her government announced sweeping and immediate changes to New Zealand’s gun laws, including the banning of assault rifles and military-style semi-automatics, following the Christchurch mosque shootings.
