Global Group Media releases 3-part series of rising women In Africa
All over the world, 2020 was perceived as the year of COVID-19 pandemic. Africa was not left out, as most countries, especially Nigeria, had to deal with a lot more than the pandemic, but also the EndSars protest against police brutality. There was also political and tribal unrest in Ethiopia, unstable presidential elections in Cote d’Ivoire and Ghana, while Uganda also witnessed unrest.
This is why a shift towards the positives, especially amongst enterprising women of innovation and perseverance was a breathable relief, as Kamala Harris became the first woman, first Black, and the first Asian American Vice President of the United States Of America (USA).
For many, Harris has not only become a role model, but also an affirmation of the power and place of women and people of colour, a fact that has become relevant not just in the USA but also globally.
In Africa, more women are answering the call to public service at all levels of government. Many are holding key ministry roles and making decisions in areas such as finance, environment, natural resources, energy, employment, vocational training, trade and industry and others.
The presence of women has been instrumental in changing the narratives of national socio-economic policies across the globe. To this effect, Global Group Media (GGM) recently unveiled the third of its three-part series, Rising Women Africa (RWA) Series, spotlighting dozens of global and African women who are thriving and influencing developments in the areas of politics, socio-economic development, health, education, technology, finance and culture.
