WOMEN DESERVE THE SPOTLIGHT
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.
