How do you get more women in political leadership?

Africa is doing relatively well in getting women into political leadership. Rwanda, South Africa, Senegal and Ethiopia lead the world in terms of women members of parliament. But that’s not the story for the whole continent. And there are still very few female heads of state. Claude welcomes three guests:

Dr Oby Ezekwesili is a Harvard University graduate, former Education minister in the Nigerian government and ex-Vice President of the World Bank (African Region). She also started the movement #bringbackourgirls.

Busisiwe Seabe, one of the leaders of the Fees Must Fall student protests.

Noëlla Coursaris Musunka is a philanthropist, model, and founder and CEO of Malaika. The Malaika school provides free, accredited primary and secondary education to 400 girls in the south-eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
