Profiles In Leadership: Joan Mjomba "Women Are Born With A Very Definite Power"

Written By: MIM!Luke Younge (of Lucid Pictures) collaborated with the Heinrich Boell Foundation to profile nine women from across the continent, who, under difference conditions, political systems, and in their own way, have tried to use their political platforms to mainstream women's agenda into policy and legislation. Here, we bring you the story of Joan Mjomba, one of the leaders profiled in the series of videos that is sure to leave you inspired.
