African Female Presidents

With the news of Hillary Clinton breaking the glass ceiling in American politics, it is important for us to do a check on how many women presidents Africa has had over the last decade.

Though the list is short for a continent with 54 country states, to satisfy your curiosity find the list of these formidable women here.

When we started working on The Girl Impact program, we were so grateful for all the resources available to us online. There are many other resources we can share, but we have found this to be  a really good place to start for organisations and people working with girls, working on fundraising for girls and for thinking through working with girls. This link will send you directly to the download page for the toolkit the Population Council created, but we will encourage you to see what else is available on the website that could be of use to you and your organisation. Happy reading!
