A groundbreaker in so many respects, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf was the first female head of state in Africa, leading Liberia from 2006 – 2018. A symbol and advocate of female empowerment, she is now spearheading the development of a presidential library that aims to cultivate Africa’s future female leaders. In keeping with its mission, the center will be designed by two of Africa’s most prominent female architects, Marian Karama and Sumayya Vally. Along with the archives, the centre will act as headquarters for an organisation led by Sirleaf that aims to be “a catalyst for political and social change across Africa by helping unleash its most abundant latent power – its women”.
