This week we reflect on episodes of the past year with a compilation of some the show’s most memorable segments. The High Commissioner of Canada, Ms Sandra McCardell, remarks on women’s inherent leadership capability and the need for women to support other women – reminding us of Madeleine Albright’s quote, “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.” Staying with the theme of female leadership, the Ambassador of Norway, Ms Trine Skymoen, relays details of the current financial loss Sub-Saharan Africa incurs as a result of women being excluded from economic participation; she also shares some of the successful policy interventions undertaken by Norway to drive gender equality in the corporate sector. Ms Geraldine Fraser-Moleketi, currently the Special Gender Envoy at the African Development Bank and former Minster of the Republic of South Africa, highlights the impact of infrastructure deficits in Africa on women and the opportunities for women to take up vital roles to build and sustain the continent. Former Minister of Human Settlements and current Member of Parliament Ms Cornelia September stresses the importance of education as a primary tool to shape and grow the Africa of today and the future. Helen Zille, the Premier of the Western Cape, former Mayor of Cape Town and former leader of the Democratic Alliance, illustrates that true female empowerment and the freedom for women to make autonomous decisions is only possible with education.
