“It’s time for women to be in leadership positions in every sector of society.”

Jabhisane Pinky Langa is a feminist activist working on women’s education and economic empowerment. She is a coordinator with Alternative Information Development Centre, an organization promoting economic, political and cultural advancement in Southern Africa. Her recent work includes running a study circle with women from communities with high unemployment affected by mining, looking at why and how these communities are not given the resources they need, how to build local economies and equip women to be able to leave abusive relationships.

Vision: Women are natural leaders. The world needs many more female leaders across all sectors. Not only will this improve conditions for women, but it will be instrumental in embedding equality in future generations growing up with women leaders.
