Coming together in four teams, the women in the list will share their experiences and create innovative ways to tackle:

  • The glass ceiling – #Teamlead
  • Female illiteracy – #Teamread
  • Street harassment – #Teamgo
  • Sexism in sport – #Teamplay

Other African women who made the list are Nigeria’s Tiwa Savage and Liberia’s first female president Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf. We are glad the world is taking note of our greatness.
