These women leaders share their experiences and challenges running for office, their ambitions, their role models and their vision for a future of Africa with equal representation. All of those featured in Women Rising are trailblazers; women who have taken up the mantle and paved the way for others to follow suit. Is one born or made a leader? What are the lessons that can be learnt from those who have come before? What are the characteristics that lead to success in leadership? These are explored in Women Rising. The documentary was commissioned jointly by FEMNET and UNDP and produced by InCA as part of a series on Women in Development in Africa. ©Copyright, 2013
