The day of the Freedom Fighters is setting as the dawn of economic and technologic age has shifted the mindsets of many, to a new dilemma. The new dilemma is about self and individual aspirations. This is the new generation where people help others by helping themselves first.
Its true how do you help others when you are in need of help yourself?
Women in the new Generation have an almost equal footing with men.
These rights and privelages are off the hard struggles of the previous generation, "the freedom fighter" generation who at constant odds have gone up all Goliaths and like David defeats the barriers of society, stereotypes and governments.
A Women at the Top
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is the 24th and current President of Liberia and 1st elected female President in Africa. Sirleaf has served as Minister of Finance under President William Tolbert from 1979 until the 1980.
She was one of the founders and the political leader of National Patriotic Front of Liberia, part of Charles Taylor's party. She placed second in the 1997 presidential election won by Charles Taylor. She won the 2005 presidential election and took office on 16 January 2006, and she was a successful candidate for re-election in 2011.
Sirleaf was awarded the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, jointly with Leymah Gbowee of Liberia and Tawakel Karman of Yemen.
The women were recognized "for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women's rights to full participation in peace-building work."
Is the continent or world still in need of this type of fighter, fighting without throwing stones and leadig throw non-violent measures? I believe it is the duty of all Countries to work with its people and liberate them from all struggles that are faced by their people.
