Liberia’s Iron Lady: so stinking cool

Africa’s first democratically elected woman president (hard to believe it took this long! oh wait, we are still waiting for our first woman president..ahem…), Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, is so stinking cool. (Okay, if you aren’t a neoliberalist, just bear with me. The lady is coping with some serious post-conflict issues.) Last year, Global Sistergoods hosted a series of free documentaries at a local beer movie theater (Portland has one in just about every neighborhood. It’s a nice place to live). They were all amazing films, but one of the films, Iron Ladies of Liberia , really spoke to us. I listened to her talk about her experiences today on Fresh Air. She’s promoting her memoir. And then go change the course the world.
