We all know the stats. Women make up more than half of the population around the world, and yet are dramatically underrepresented in government, in business, and in leadership positions. But we also know that when women lead, amazing things happen. This week, we feature several of those leaders who work with Vital Voices. This amazing organization invests in women leaders in every corner of the globe, and the work they do is changing the world. In this extended episode, we hear from Alyse Nelson, the President of Vital Voices. Lina Kalifeh, founder of the SheFighter self defense for women, Esra’a al-Shafei, a Bahraini activist fighting for LGBTQ rights in the Middle East and North Africa, and Kah Walla, the first woman to run for president in Cameroon. Each of these women have stories of power and pain, and I hope you listen well.
