THE RISE OF AFRICAN WOMEN


Is this a new era for African women?

Liberians will expect much of whoever is elected into office. Following Liberia's presidential run-off on Tuesday former banker Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has taken a strong lead in the polls. If Mrs Johnson-Sirleaf does win she will be Africa's first elected female leader.

Last year Joyce Mujuru became Zimbabwe's vice-president and earlier this year South Africa's President Thabo Mbeki chose Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka to be his deputy - both the holders of the highest political office held by a woman in their countries.

Maybe with some woman in high places some male African politicians may learn a thing or two about humanity.


Then again...
