Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

“If you’re competing with men as a professional, you have to be better than they are…Even when you gain their acceptance, it’s in a male-dominate way. They say, ‘Oh, now she’s one of the boys.’”

President of Liberia, co-recipient of 2011 Nobel Peace Prize with Liberian activist Leymah Gbowee and democracy proponent Tawakkul Karman of Yemen (Sirleaf’s presidential campaign slogan: Ellen – She’s Our Man.)
