1st Female President Ethiopia.Sahle-Work Zewde.2015.SimonMaina

Ethiopia has installed its first female president (and Africa’s second), Sahle-Work Zewde, a longtime UN official seen here with Pope Francis in 2015. The post is largely ceremonial as head of state, but some analysts said that if an ancient civilization like Ethiopia can choose a woman for the top job, so can every other nation in Africa.
