WOMEN DE­SERVE THE SPOT­LIGHT

The Africa Report - - MAILBAG -

The list of the most in­flu­en­tial Africans is care­fully cu­rated to high­light key fig­ures on the con­ti­nent in pol­i­tics, busi­ness and the arts [‘The 100 Most In­flu­en­tial Africans’, TAR107 Apr-june 2019]. Whilst im­pres­sive off face value, it fea­tures a mere 24 women, which isn’t enough. As a black woman, I cel­e­brate the fact that Chi­ma­manda Ngozi Adichie, Sahle-work Zewde and Lupita Ny­ong’o were se­lected. But as a young African entreprene­ur, I’d love to see more fabulous busi­ness­women, fe­male in­no­va­tors and thought lead­ers.
