Ghana: Obstacles to the Advancement of Women

Betty Mould Iddrisu, jurist and Minister of Justice of Ghana, writes [fr] on pambazuka.org:

A woman at the top works harder than a man to prove her skills, and yet she still must face entrenched prejudices and hostility, in her role as manager and leader, in a work environment largely dominated by males.
