Africa’s Two Female Presidents Join Forces for Women
MONROVIA, May 9 (IPS) – The only two female heads of state in Africa, Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Malawian President Joyce Banda, have just committed to using their positions to improve the lives of women across the continent.
Both Sirleaf and Banda have long championed women’s rights. And on Apr. 29 in Monrovia, two years into what the African Union (AU) has declared the "Women’s Decade", they pledged to work together to accelerate those efforts.
