Leadership is about how those in top positions exercise power and influence. Leadership must serve both women and men, young and old, the empowered and marginalised, weak and strong, poor and rich. The kind of leadership we need in Africa must be transformative. It must first address the question of inequality, exclusion and identity.


It is necessary to implement legislation to address violence against women in Africa. Yet women must tread the fine line between cultural expectations and legal systems that often deny them justice.
