Did you know that while the United States celebrated the election of its first female vice president in 2020, Africa had already paved the way for female leadership with 28 female presidents and prime ministers? And it's not just a recent trend - since 1975, Africa has had an impressive 44 female heads of state in 23 of its 55 countries. Sadly, the incredible contributions of Africa and its people have often been overlooked or undervalued, and the same goes for the remarkable achievements of women of African descent around the world. That's why GloBUNTU Books is proud to showcase 102 truly exceptional black women from Africa, Europe, North and South America, and the Caribbean who have shattered barriers and risen to the highest levels of political power in their countries. This book is a celebration of black female resilience and accomplishment. It is a political legacy, and a powerful reminder of the rich history and heritage that belongs to us all.
