“Our economy and society needs to transform and, for that to happen, women must be part of that change, whether through politics or through teaching. Women must take part in creating policies and legislation that reflect the society they want to live in. We can encourage women to take part in politics by teaching our girls that no position is just for a man and that a woman is just as qualified to become president as a man. There needs to be a mentality change on what spaces a woman can or cannot occupy.”

Toyin Saraki is the Founder and President of the Well Being Foundation Africa. She also serves as the Global Goodwill Ambassador to the International Confederation of Midwives. She is the African Champion for the White Ribbon Alliance, Champion for the Women Advocates for Vaccine Access and the Centenary Ambassador for the London School of Oriental and African Studies, which is her alma mater. She recently hosted a campaign launch of SOAS in Lagos, where its 100th anniversary was celebrated.
