These Distinguished Women are some of Africa’s outstanding Women in Business and finest icons who have truly excelled, not only in their professional lives and industries typically dominated by men; but as leaders and role models supporting other women to realize their dreams.
While many of these women come from different industries and walks of life, they share certain traits — a strong sense of self-worth, a success-driven work ethics and the extraordinary accomplishments to show for it; their commitment, vision and talents make them true leaders in their chosen fields.
In keeping faith with popular predictions that the Year 2017 is a “Year of the African Woman”, the amazing achievements of these amazons are being showcased and celebrated by the Amazons Watch Magazine to inspire young women and girls across the region to rise above the societal limitations and break “glass ceilings” to achieve their dreams and contribute to the development of the region.
