Now get to work!
It is always an honour when we see women taking up major leadership roles especially in what is presumed to be a male-dominated field really speaks volumes.
We definitely celebrate these queens making a difference in their countries;
1. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf – Liberia.
Born on the 29th of October 1938, she was the 24th president of Liberia. Ellen served as the Minister of Finance from 1979-1980. She was elected as the president of Liberia in the year 2005 and took the office in January 2006 after a peace movement called the Women of Liberia Mass Action spearheaded the election of their first-ever female president.
2. Bibi Ameenah Firdaus Gurib-Fakim – Mauritius.
Ameenah is a Mauritian biodiversity scientist who has served as the 6th president of Mauritius from 2015 – 2018. She was selected as a presidential candidate by the party Alliance Lepep. She is the first woman to be elected as president and served as the head of state after Elizabeth II and Monique Ohsan Bellepeau.
