WOW | What You Think

A woman you admire in politics and why?

One of my favourite women leaders globally has been Hillary Clinton. She is an extraordinary leader whose life-long devotion for children rights, violence against women and advocating relentlessly for kids with disabilities as a young lawyer has resonated with me as a mother and as a woman.

In the West, sexism may be less pronounced but in the political arena its very much prevalent. But to see Hillary Clinton shatter the glass ceiling and still serve as the Secretary of State after she lost the elections and run for the 2016 Presidential election is really encouraging for other aspiring young women leaders. I admire her for all that she is and #I amwithher.
