Is Liberia’s Sirleaf really standing up for women?

Africa’s first elected female president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf President Sirleaf’s promise to campaign for women candidates in Liberia’s upcoming elections comes too little, too late.

Defense ministers in Africa proposed establishing a rapid response force

East Africa––Defense chiefs from African nations met in the Ugandan capital Kampala this week to discuss regional security and defense matters facing the continent, especially in the wake international terrorism.
