Our Woman Crush Wednesday goes to Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. Nobel Peace Prize winner, Harvard graduate and the first woman to be elected President of Liberia also making her the first female to be elected Head of State across Africa! Madam Sirleaf has served as the President since 2006 and will be resigning later this month.
Madam Sirleaf won the 2005 presidential campaign after Liberia went through a 15 year civil war. Madam Sirleaf's tenacity to better Liberia has driven her resolve to maintain peace in the country. She promised unity and has kept her word to her people ever since. She has been nicknamed the "Iron Lady" for her work to alleviate Liberia's debt . She has fought for women's rights and worked with President Barack Obama to create Ebola relief centers across her country. This is just a small portion of the great work she has achieved during her 11 years in term. We salute Madam Sirleaf and her tireless work to make a difference in her country and for her people.
