    A 19-year-old female in Uganda beats eight candidates to gain parliament seat - http://allafrica.com/stories/201209150718.html


    Wonderful things happening allover Africa. Just weeks ago, the AU (African Union) elected it first female leader - South African named first woman to chair AU - Africa - Al Jazeera English


    Months ago, the IMF elected its first female chief - IMF elects its first woman chief


    The list is getting longer. It appears the world is beginning to see that it would take women of strength to right several worldwide wrongs. More power to women of strength!

    I went into politics because of corruption in Uganda politics and "I want to fight for my nation," says Uganda's youngest politician, Proscovia Oromait.
