How I did it: 3 stories from women in male-dominated industries

As James Brown once put it, it’s a man’s world. But in this episode we talk to three women who don’t think that’s true. And they’re proving it by doing the most in male-dominated industries.

What challenges do they face? How do they make their voices heard in their place of work? And what are the positives of being one of the only women in those industries?

Linda Mabhena-Olagunju runs a wholly African female-owned independent power producer, and operates one of Africa’s largest wind farms.

DJ Elly, is one of Angola’s biggest DJs.

Kah Walla, politician and entrepreneur, was the first woman to stand for president in Cameroon in 2011.
