"Women Crack Under Pressure" ... Myth Busted!


Liberia President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf earned the nickname "Iron Lady" as an opposition leader who didn't flinch in one of the world's most treacherous political landscapes. She fearlessly criticized Liberia's fiscal management, even when that meant house arrest and, in one case, prison.

But Johnson Sirleaf could not be broken. In 2005 the people of Liberia made her Africa's first elected female head of state.

Read the story of the woman who busted the myth "Women Crack Under Pressure."

Then, pledge to become a CARE myth buster today!
