December 7, 2010 at 4:55 pm 1 comment

Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the President of Liberia, is known as the “Iron Lady of Africa.”  She spoke of the need to balance toughness and sensitivity and opined that being a woman helped her strike that balance of scary and grandmotherly.

She also commented that she would not have accomplished as much as she has done if she had been a man.  “To go through all I’ve been through… and being a woman, it really set me apart.  You could call me a victor of circumstances.”
